  • Product Recommendation For You Mayo Addicts

    I know some of you love mayo like me and don't want to give it up--and making it at home can be a frustrating experience.

    The other day I purchased a Cuisinart stick blender (http://www.cuisinart.com/products/ha...rs/csb-76.html). It had a mayo recipe in the book (replacing the egg beaters with one real egg). Tried it out. Damn! In less than two minutes perfect mayo!

    I used http://www.olivado.com/ for an avocado oil base.

    Definitely recommend both.

    Here's the recipe if anyone is interested. The italicized items are my notes.

    MAYONNAISE

    Make quick mayonnaise in just moments.

    Makes about 1 1⁄4 cups

    1⁄4 cup pasteurized liquid egg product (such as EggBeaters®) OR 1 large egg
    1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    1⁄2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    1 cup vegetable oil (avocado or light olive oil)
    1⁄4 teaspoon kosher salt
    1⁄4 teaspoon ground white pepper

    Place all ingredients in mixing container in order listed. Insert stick blender
    holding blade against bottom of container and process until mixture
    begins to thicken, about 15 seconds. Continue processing with a gentle
    up-and-down motion until thick, about 20–30 seconds longer.

      I've tried making it with a stick blender before. FAIL.

          homemade mayo isn't that much better than the high quality store-bought stuff. Although I'm sure avocado oil is a better option than Canola or Safflower oils.

          I haven't tried it yet, but a lot of people rave about baconnaise. It's a better option in terms of the fat profile.

            My wife has a Kitchenaid mixer which I used to make mayo on Sunday. Used virgin olive oil for the first batch and it was unpalatable due to the strong olive flavour. Used Extra Light Virgin for the second batch which is good as it doesn't have much flavour at all. I think I'll get avocado for the next batch though. Tks

              You are my hero... my mom still likes to buy me multiple birthday gifts and I've been working on my list, and completely forgot until now that I definitely want a stick blender! Then maybe I'll try the recipe, too. =]

                I just got a stick blender recently. I might try it out for mayo making. Although I'm still not convinced that a "perfect" fat for mayo-making exists. I guess light olive oil (too processed?) or avocado oil (too expensive) are the best. I've made it with bacon grease and it's delicious fresh, but it hardens in the fridge.

                  What's it like when it comes out of the fridge? Does it separate or become mayo-like again once it warms up?

                    I must admit that although I have know how to, I just buy the best quality mayo and consider it one of the few things in my 20%

                    BUT kudos to those who make it from scratch----I am a former chef and caterer, and I still love my jar of mayo~

                        Try 2 parts olive oil and one part coconut oil. It is about as good as it gets.

                          It's a lot denser and harder when it's cold. I guess it's still spreadable, but it's not exactly creamy. I haven't tried reheating. It may be worth a shot.

                          I'll give it a shot. Does the olive oil not make it bitter? Or are we talking pure olive oil (as oppsed to extra-virgin)?

                            I just use olive oil but not extra-virgin for this, I don't notice any bitter flavor. I am not looking for flavor from the oil. I am still working but over all I like what I end up with. I use virgin cold pressed coconut oil and it will have a slight coconut flavor. I am sure in time I will find a spice that will push the coconut flavor out but for now I don't mind it at all.

                              I switched from Best Foods Real Mayo to a health store Olive Oil based Mayo called Ledess. I REALLY like my Best Foods MUCH better.....its one of the few delimas I have in the food choice area. I will finish this jar, but not positive that I wont be going back to my Best Foods Mayo!
