I don't know any brand names since I'm in Canada, but it's very easy to make your own mayo
here's one recipe and there are many variations, this is just very basic.
To do a Real Mayonnaise:
Have everything at room temperature. To the bowl of your food processor, with the steel blade at ready, add:
2 egg yolks
1 whole egg
1 Tbl. French style mustard
grind of black pepper, or bit of white or red
pinch of salt
juice of lemon
Turn on food processor, and let run for 10-15 seconds. Then, while still running, dribble in:
2 cups oil.
Use corn, peanut or other oil. For the distinctive taste, some or all of the oil can be olive. Be careful though, in a Mayonnaise made with all olive oil, if the oil is the least bit heavy the Mayonnaise will be a heavy thing indeed.
When all the oil has been added, shut off the machine and taste the Mayonnaise. You might want to add a bit more lemon juice or salt. This is also the time to add a bit of Tarragon, or a few chives, maybe a tiny touch of a fine curry powder, or anything else that might give it a distinctive flair. Whirl it few more seconds, and scrape into a stainless steel or glass bowl. Enjoy fresh and warm, or chill well before using.
If you don't h ave a food processor a hand mixer will be fine.
