We were out of mayonnaise up at the house, and we wanted to make turkey sandwiches, which must have mayonnaise!

If you add anything to this mayonnaise, it becomes and aoli. You could add curry, garlic, herbs, and then we can call this an aoli recipe as well.

How does the homemade mayo keep? I'd love to never use store bought again, can i just refill an old mayo jar and expect it to keep or is it more of a short term shelf life?
Thanks, love the site!
Yesterday, I was in the middle of chopping veggies to put in ham salad sandwiches and realized I was out of mayo. I almost sent my husband to buy some but then remembered this episode, so my son and I made some! Next time I think I will use half the lemon juice and salt -- seemed a bit tangy and salty when we tasted it alone, but it still tasted GREAT with the ham & veggie salad. We will keep this recipe on hand. Thank you!!
