    Couple of questions about mayonnaise?

    Primal Fuel
    Can I make mayonnaise using coconut oil and without any other oil? What would be the recipe for this?
    Can I make mayonnaise with whole eggs instead of just the yolks? What would be the difference?
    Do I need vinegar for mayonnaise? Is it just for the taste or also for the texture?

    Coconut Mayonnaise

    I've never made it, so I can't vouch for the results.

    You need an acid for the emulsification. You can use vinegar or lemon juice (I use a combination of both).

    I have better luck with thickening with just yolks than with whole eggs.

    I find yolks alone better too.

    I've tried making mayo with only coconut oil; the result was thick and amazing. But once I put it in the fridge, it completely solidified (due to the fact that it was mostly saturated fat); it was unusable, and I had to throw it out . I think doing half coconut oil and half olive oil would ensure that it will not solidify once refrigerated.
