    Amazing. Very strong flavor.

    The recipe is missing information that is key to making homemade mayo.
    Bottled lemon juice has more consistent acidity; why use fresh?
    Egg size? Fresh or old?
    Will olive oil work? Corn? Sunflower?
    Blender speed?
    How much mixing is "Blend"?
    How fast is "Slowly pour"?
    Eggs right out of the refrigerator or room temperature?

    Forty years making blender mayonnaise has shown me those are crucial considerations for success.
