We once drove through a town in Western Maryland -- appropriately called Accident, MD -- that had a store called "Chainsaws n' Cheese." That really was all they sold.

Brooklyn's Beloved Artisanal Mayo Shop Is Moving, Owner Says 'This Is Not Gentrification'

I'm not sad, I hate mayo. But I kinda wanted to go to take an ironic photo.
Well, in these days and times, most people are swearing off mayo. It's kind of like opening a Artisanal Crisco shop IMO.

In Middletown, Maryland, there's a business called "Rudy's Welding Service and Cold Beer". I've purchased beer there (and it WAS cold), but I've never had any welding done.

You and I obviously have different definitions of what a full time job is.

Jeez, just make your own mayonnaise. If you have a blender it takes about 10 minutes. You can make any flavor mayonnaise you want.

There ya go. Ketchup is much more labor intensive than mayonnaise, and the ingredients are more expensive. Once they are in ketchup and mayo, the road is wide open to seafood cocktail sauce and tartar sauce. Maybe they just didn't have time to make ketchup.

If you want to make your own mayonnaise, use the pasteurized egg products in the refrigerated case at the store. No salmonella. After that you can use any herbs or spices you like. Recipes vary, but mayonnaise is just an egg-oil emulsion. Start slow, a few drops of oil at a time until it starts to look creamy, then you can go a little faster. I use a blender.

Thanks for the smoked hot paprika tip. I'll try a batch of that. I suspect it would taste better with a little vinegar. Now all I have to do is decide what kind of vinegar. Choices, choices.

Nonsense. Low carb eaters can groove on mayonnaise.

What is the going price for that anyway????Cause mayo is most the time free.... You can walk in any gas station, cafetaria and so on and grab a handfull packages.
I'm no lawyer, but I'm pretty sure that's shoplifting if you don't buy the item that it is a condiment for.
