I tried to make Primal Mayo per the instructions on this website. I took a lick and it tasted like olive oil and salt. Anybody else have the same issue? It hasn't chilled overnight yet so I am holding out hope.
It doesn't work with EVOO -- it will taste like bitter grass no matter what or how long you wait. You have to use extra light olive oil which doesn't have the strong taste or some other type of oil. My recipe is similar to Grokon's, but I don't put stevia (I put a dash of mustard though). I usually use half cider vinegar and half lemon juice for the acid. It really is very tasty and easy.
My first time making it, I used EVOO and put it in a huge chicken salad, which I ate so as not to waste it -- but it tasted terrible, terrible. Good luck!
My recipe is very similar to Grokon's as well. I use the extra light taste olive oil.
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
1.5 tbsp white vinegar
Scant 1/2 tsp salt, or to taste (if you like a sweeter mayo, scale it back to 1/4 tsp)
Scant 1/4 tsp stevia powder or to taste
1 tsp plain ol' yellow prepared mustard
1 cup extra light tasting olive oil
To me, this tastes the most like commercial brands, but I think it's actually better. By adjusting the amounts you can also make it taste more like miracle whip (add more vinegar and sweetener)
Mmm...that sounds interesting jes1014. I've never considered coconut oil. I'm going to try that. I've always had better luck with a lighter version olive oil. I had to try a bunch of mayo recipes before I found one that worked for me and then I made some adjustments from there. Here's my recipe:
