  • James Roller says:

    This was a difficult decision for me to come to. The recipe as originally printed said this: “1 Jar Mayonnaise Heavy Duty” but “jar” is not a volume measure and I couldn’t put that, so I did some research. First, I asked Meg and her publicist for clarification but never heard anything back. Then, I just googled “1 Jar Mayonnaise Heavy Duty” and most of the results seemed to indicate 1 gallon (google it and see). So, I went with 1 gallon. Though in hindsight, that does seem out of ratio with the other ingredients. When you say “jar,” do you mean quart? Thanks!

  • DD says:

    It should be 1 jar of mayo
