Raw eggs are an important ingredient in mayonnaise. If you are concerned about using raw eggs in your mayonnaise, try this method which heats the eggs just enough to kill bacteria. You can also use radiated eggs and skip the heating process.
"Cookwise" by Shirley O. Corriher (Wm Morrow)
Heat the egg yolks, lemon juice, water, and sugar in a small skillet over very low heat, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan constantly with a spatula.
At the first sign of thickening, remove the pan from the heat but continue stirring.
Dip the pan bottom in a large pan of cold water to stop cooking.
Scrape into a blender, blend for a second or so, then let stand uncovered at least five minutes to cool.
Cover and, with the blender running, drizzle the oil in very slowly at first, down the center hole into the egg mixture.
Transfer mayonnaise to a clean container and chill immediately. This will keep for at least seven days refrigerated.
