1 tin condensed milk
2 egg yolks

Put all in a bowl and whisk till it thickens.

Wow the recipe for Granny’s Magic Mayonnaise, bloggers I have had the pleasure of smothering chicken and ham with this... it’s delicious, BUT been warned it slows your heart down and I have witnessed that Fiona can make this in record time when Christmas guests request it. Worth trying Cheers Helen
