DIY Essentials: Zesty Mayonnaise

Andy Anderson !


A simple mayonnaise to make… and so tasty. I love this, because it does not have all the chemicals you find in store-bought mayonnaise. And, you can modify the ingredients to suit your own tastes.

FYI: I love this with tuna on toast... So yummy.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
