Basic Homemade Mayonnaise Recipes

Homemade mayonnaise is very easy to make. This mayonnaise is complete natural and so much healthier than the one from the shelf. No additives, no preservatives and high fructose syrup! Actually it is so easy to make that I asked myself: Why did I buy mayonnaise all the times?
It gets really easy with a stick mixer and is done within some minutes.
