Laura welcome to Grit. i'm a fellow blogger as Rosedale Gardens. Like you I kept following the directions for line breaks and it wasn't working. I kept forgetting to ask Dave how he was doing it. In the ingredients, you have 1/2 C oil and in the direction 1 and 1/2. Would you clarify please? Again welcome.

Laura, line breaks are accomplished by writing the comment in another text writer and then copy and pasting into the comment box. It used to work but a few months back in one of the website enhancements the line break quite working. I write my comment in a email message then copy it over to the comment. It's a lot of work but the comment comes out better when it's not just all packed together.

Good morning, Dave, and thanks for the input! My first try at mayonnaise did come out a bit yellower. The yellow color comes from the paprika. I adjusted the amount of paprika that I added to the recipe to suit our tastes, is all. :) Nebraska is a beautiful state. I spent a couple of years there, near the east border. Sometimes I miss being able to see for miles. I also save what seeds I can. Tomatoes are pretty easy to save the seeds from. I'm trying some new crops this year, and I bought my seeds from cherrygal.com. I haven't heard of Baker Creek. While I am very satisfied with cherrygal, I'll keep that in mind for later. Thank you for your welcome... and sorry about the bad paragraph structure. Can't figure out how to do a line break yet! LOL

Laura, welcome to the GRIT blog community. I really don't use mayonnaise much. Your recipe sounds like something that I would like with the mustard power. I find it interesting that the color is not more yellow or maybe it is as I'm partially color blind to pastel colors. Especially green, brown, and yellow. I've just discovered the heirloom seed catalog called Baker Creek. I am overwhelmed at the moment from looking through the seed catalog. I do like to plant heirloom seeds. I hope to start saving the seeds as 25 tomato seeds for $2.75 seems like a lot to me. I mean one can hardly see 25 tomato seeds in a package. I can remember Mom planting tomatoes from a big fat seed pack and just broadcasting them in the row and weeding out the weak ones to the right spacing. Boy how things have changed. I'm from Nebraska and back when I was teenager and helped my uncle on the farm seed corn was bought by the bushel. Now it's purchased by the seed count. Well, it's been a long time since I was teenager and away from gardening for over 40 years. I was quite shocked at the price of seed and how little comes in a package. The package weighs 10 times more than 25 tomato seeds. Goodness, I could have ever so many more seeds just by saving the seeds from one tomato. As you can tell I get a little long winded and climb on the soapbox on occasion. .... Ok, quite often. Have a great day and once again welcome to the community. I look forward to hearing more about your garden experiences.
