There’s a mystery around how to make Mayonnaise. People say you need a very tricky technique of continuously beating the mixture of egg yolks and vinegar, adding oil teeny bit by teeny bit… And it’s true, you can do it that way, it works. But recently I discovered a method of making mayonnaise that is SO much simpler and SO much faster!

So I made an illustrated recipe.
