Boiled Mayonnaise

I know that there will probably be those out there that will say that this is not a mayonnaise!  But it is what my mother and godmother called it, so it is what I will call it too.  It’s delicious and so very versatile.

Boiled Mayonnaise
I found this recipe in my mum's recipe book. I think the recipe was one that was given to her by my godmother, Joan Bibby, as mum always wrote the name of the person who shared the recipe, next to the recipe. I don't think that I will ever buy salad dressing again. This has so much potential.
