Was there a bit of soap left in the processor? Or if you just rinsed it after dumping the first batch something left in the bowl could have thrown off the next batch and stopped it from emulsifying.

Never mind. Try again another time because homemade mayo is so wonderful it is worth it.

Here is the recipe I use all the time- I make Aioli but if you want just straight mayo don't put all the garlic in. I have never had this recipe fail- ever. And I've made hundreds of batches of it. It is probably a Julia recipe- don't even know for certain. Might have been out of the very old Robot Coupe recipe book that came with my ancient RC machine. Wherever it came from, it is a good one.


4 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 large egg
1 T raspberry or champagne vinegar
2 tsp dry hot mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 C vegetable oil

Put all except oil in a blender or food processor. Process for 30 seconds then add oil slowly with machine on until mix is thick. Keeps for about 3 days in the refrigerator.
