No offense, you know I like ya, BUT, use nasty olive oil in anything, it's going to be nasty.
Nasty is that jar of sugar called Miricle Whip.
We're sold on Hellmans because that's all we had and knew about.
A little h2o and some extra lemon juice, less EVOO. No clumping or thickening, no bitterness. EVOO has little acidity so you have to add some more.
The zen of mayo, evoo, no machines. Just a balloon whip and a large bowl. No frantic agitating, shaking, jumping up and down, plugging things in, spinning around.
Just a nice back and forth motion until it thickens a little. It's not meringue, it shouldn't peak.
I do however kinda like the citrus Hellmans, Mayonesa con jugo de Limon, it's nice for salads.
No offense taken. You know I like (respect) ya as well.
I tried and tried and never obtained a result I liked. Not ready to pay $$ for super exclusive high quality EVOO just to try again.
