From EatingWell:  July/August 1996, EatingWell for a Healthy Heart Cookbook (2008)

Though there are myriad great low-fat mayos on the market, there's nothing quite like making it from scratch.

About 1 cup | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Whisk together cornstarch, mustard, sugar, salt and cayenne in a medium saucepan. Add 1/4 cup of the buttermilk and whisk until you have a smooth paste. Add egg and the remaining 1/2 cup buttermilk and whisk until smooth.
  2. Set the pan over medium-low heat and cook, whisking, until the mixture comes to a simmer and thickens. Continue to whisk for 15 seconds, then remove the pan from the heat.
  3. Whisk in lemon juice and oil. Transfer the mayonnaise to a small bowl and press a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface to prevent a skin from forming. Let cool.
