Homemade Mayonaisse

In efforts to avoid foods with preservatives, chemicals and any other kind of unpronouncibles (is that a word?) joking 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?   laughing   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.  joking

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.

      1. Well, a lot of olive oil being sold in the USA and Canada is not real olive oil.

        Here is a yahoo story.

        I was trying to load a video where Dr. Oz talks about it too. It wouldn’t load for me. It’s part of a show called Supermarket Food Fraud. I thought it was good because he also told how to identify real olive oil from fake…. part of it being his ‘fridge test’. However, when I was doing a search, I did come across this article which sstate the ‘fridge test’ doesn’t necessarily work.

        I am confused once again!

  1. i don’t really trust anything dr. oz has to say, personally. but anyway, your recipe is so much different from the one i used! at least, if i remember right, all i used when making mine was egg and oil, with a bit of lemon juice i think. i don’t care much for the taste of olive oil, at least not the EVOO. i always buy the light flavor… so it doesn’t really have a flavor. i’ve heard grapeseed oil works well, but i can’t afford grapeseed. i’ve also heard of blending olive oil and coconut oil together. can’t use straight coconut oil because your mayo would become solid once refrigerated. in any case, since i pack mark sandwiches in his lunchbox i just buy the stuff pumped full of preservatives, so that if it doesn’t stay cold enough (and it usually doesn’t in texas) it won’t spoil.

    1. When I looked on the Hellman’s jar it did add lemon as an ingredient and it didn’t say vinegar either. Next time I will swap it out. Yes, heat is a factor of course. You probably are safer with the preservatives.
