While in the middle of making chicken sandwiches recently, Mr FGB discovered that we were out of mayonnaise.  So, I scavenged through to the very back recesses of my recipe folder and after a little searching pulled out my mothers homemade mayonnaise recipe.  We grew up with this mayonnaise, and this page comes from a lovingly written out recipe book that my Mum gave me when I first moved out of home over 17 years ago now…. but I’m not sure if I ever made it.  I got lazy and we just buy it.  Sorry Mum.  I think that is going to change now though as this was yum.

It’s quite yummy, doesn’t include egg and is very, very easy.
If you can’t read the image above in Granny’s writing, the recipe is as follows…
1 tin sweetened condensed milk
1 cup white vinegar
1 teaspoon powdered mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt.

Mix together and put in jar.

    Thanks for the recipe! I love the fact that there are no raw eggs in it, I'll be giving it a try. How long would you say it would last in the fridge?

    I used to hope that my grandparents had run out of mayo when I was visiting because it was my job to make this for them (and lick the condensed milk can clean, of course)!!

    This is the best Mayonnaise. It must have done the rounds back in our grandmothers day as this is the same recipe I use:) It comes out of the PNWU cookbook:)
