In efforts to avoid foods with preservatives, chemicals and any other kind of unpronouncibles (is that a word?) I decided to start making my own mayonnaise.
This is revised version of one a recipe I found online.
I made mine right in the bowl and used a hand blender (or as Scott likes to say ‘immersion blender’.
Doesn’t it look yummy? Well, maybe not but it did taste pretty good.
I started reading a bit here and there on various opinions on what kind of oils (or mixes of oils) to use and decided to just use avocado oil, just because I wanted to use that kind because I do believe it to be healthy….until the health experts change their mind.
Next time I might try olive oil or a mix.
I also added xylitol as I noted that on the Hellman’s jar, the ingredient list did contain sugar. I did a taste test when I was done. It didn’t really taste exactly like Hellman’s… but it wasn’t bad either. And I think it has to be healthier.
