    Primal Mayonnaise Recipe.

    Primal Fuel
    I make my mayonnaise with extra virgin olive oil and cold pressed organic rapeseed oil whisked with an egg. But after being told that even cold pressed organic rapeseed oil is bad I am not sure what to sub it with. I don't want to use all EVOlive oil cause it is a very strong flavour. Anyone any idea on an oil with a very subtle flavour - I was going to try grapeseed?

    Others here have had success with macadamia oil. I've tried with avocado oil + extra-virgin olive oil and it works, but it does get kinda solid in the fridge. I've also tried bacon grease and it gets solid too. Here's a post about doing it with ghee. I can imagine that would get REALLY solid:

    And here's an awesome Food Lab post about the science of mayo and some animal fat mayo recipes, though it does call for using canola/vegetable oil:

    Just found this page:

    So it looks like macadamia is slightly lower in saturated fat than avocado, but avocado is higher in PUFA, so if I had to guess I'd think avocado would be better for mayo from a texture/emulsion standpoint.

    Avocado oil. It is yum-o!
    For a sweeter mayo, try macadamia nut oil.

    The extra light Olive oil has almost no taste whats-so-ever so you are left with the taste of the eggy mayo, and if you use egg whites it taste the most like mayo. My family won't eat it with yolks or heavy olive oil so my recipe is simple and short:
    2 -3 egg whites
    1/2 tsp dry mustard
    1/2 tsp quality salt
    1 T apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
    2/3 c extra light olive oil

    I layer it all in a tall container or 1 quart mason jar and stick in the immersion blender and starting from the bottom slowly pull it up and mayo in less than a minute!

    Surely light olive oil is highly refined? I like using the yolk, I wouldn't think it'd be real mayo if I used the white. I always add garlic to make aoili too.

    I'll try the avocado oil cos I'll have trouble finding macadamia oil over here. Any thoughts on Walnut oil?

    Thanks everyone.

    Totally agree about not using the egg white!

    Just extra virgin olive oil can make a very strong flavour - almost too bitter and peppery for me. I often cut it with either walnut, macadamia or avocado oil. The macadamia was my favourite, until I bought one bottle (it is expensive) which gave the mayo a really "off" and rancid flavour. I haven't bought any more of it since.

    Lakeland Plastics, of all things, used to sell good avocado oil - don't know if they still do....

    I'm in Ireland so not sure what Lakeland Plastics is? Thanks though. I can get avocado oil easy enough though.

    Wouldn't the mayo get hard because of the coconut oil?
