I use De Lallo Pesto sauce. Pine nuts, high sodium...but I use very little.
I thought it was the pesto sauce, not the pasta sauce. I can't buy pesto sauce--pine nuts, so I always make my own.

I have two stick (immersion) blenders, and a blender jar that fits atop my food processor. It looks to me like a stick blender would be the ideal tool for making mayonnaise but then I've never done it. Which should I use? Or should I get a stand mixer? (I'll get one eventually, but not any time soon.)

I have used the immersion blender and was happy with the results.

That's good to know. I would have thought those sharp, little blades and the speed would be less than ideal for mayo.

It seems to me that mine is a B&D and came with a recipe book (I've had it forever). Included was recipe for mayo and that was the first time I ever made mayo at home (not that I make mayo at other locations).

That's funny, I was worried that those little blades would be too fast! I don't know if you have one, but they go like crazy!

I got my Coozie (Cuisinart) and I got a H-B. The H-B has two speeds. I like them both. Don't ask me why I have two.

I'm thinking of buying one of those Spishak models too...

I used my Cuisinart to make whipped cream tonight. I love the attachments.
