    I just found this recipe in the tropical traditions section

    they are having a great coconut oil sale right now

    I think I will try this recipe!

    oh I imagine dipping coconut flour and almond flour cover chicken strips in this yum!~ xoxox Darlene


    Coconut Mayonnaise


    1 whole egg

    2 egg yolks

    1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

    1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

    1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt


    1/4 teaspoon white pepper

    1/2 cup Virgin Coconut Oil (melted if solid)

    1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

    1. Put the eggs, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, salt, and pepper into a food processor or blender: Then with the processor or blender running on low speed, start adding your oils very slowly. Start out with drops and then work up to about a 1/16-inch stream. It should take about two minutes to add the oil.


    2. Continue blending until there is no free standing oil.


    Makes about 1 1/2 cups.

    What's the deal with virgin and "extra virgin" oils? There is not such thing as the latter. And if there were, why two oils?


    I've seen CO mayo recipes and as might be expected, they just us VCO.

    No, PG, there is no industry standard for "extra" virgin CO. It's marketing hyperbole for the lesser informed. Virgin CO is an industry standard; it is made with fresh coconut meat and expeller pressed. Low heat, all mechanical, no chemicals.


    We've been round and round on this before you joined up.


    But the question remains, why half one type and half the other (which technically doesn't exist)?


    Can't comment on you witty ending! No experience and not looking for it.

    The EXTRA VIRGIN refers to the olive oil in the recipe, not the coconut oil.

    With OO "extra virgin" is supposed to refer to a "virgin" oil with superior taste do to a lower acid content. But I think in reality it is a mostly meaningless moniker. It think for CO, it means even less.


    I think when I try it I am going to try lower quality OO in the recipe. I find the EVOO taste too strong for mayo. But CO might be very good. I will have to try it.

    It's grandma, but you can call me sir.

    I'm going to have to try this. Mayonaise with the two healthy veggie oils? Say it isn't so...

    It's my favorite mayo, ever! You can also make it with ONLY Coconut Oil, but it doesn't store well, as it hardens like coconut Oil normally does, so you'd only make it for immediate use.


    Yes, the Extra Virgin applies to Olive Oil only. Be weary of 'Extra Virgin Coconut Oil' labels, because it just isn't so.
