    Funny thing ... I used to eat mayonnaise quite often but after turning "primal", I completely forgot about it! I know you could use some special olive oil (not the extra virgin, but the light refined one with much less flavor) or mac nut oil, in which case I suspect a strong flavor bias. Personally, I don't bother. I haven't thought about it until I read your post!!

    I've always eaten it just occasionally, but I do like it every now and then. That goes well with making it myself, as you can just make a smaller portion. But all recipes seem to call for PUFA-rich oils. Hopefully I can manage the coconut/olive blend in a tasty way eventually.

I did try it with butter and coconut oil once, but that never even became thick for some reason.

    Have you tried MCT oil? That's liquid at room temp.

    My recent batch was almost completely MCT oil, because I had way less macadamia nut oil than expected, and out of anything else. It came out pretty good.

    Very dependent on the other ingredients for taste obviously... I put too much or too little of something because it had a tang to it. Or, maybe because the egg had been sitting out for a few days before I finally got around to making mayo.

    Mct oil could be worth a shot, but I've never seen it in stores here. I did a search, but the online stores that do have it charge an absurd price for it.

    The NOW brand is pretty cheap, if you're just looking for a tasteless oil. I'm not really a fan of the BP guy but I do feel slightly better energy effects from his MCT brand -- but it's almost twice as much.

    This was around 37 dollars for a bottle. That is sadly more than I can afford for it.
    Importing from the US will have added taxes and customs and it would end up being too expensive as well.

    Melted butter or ghee. Seriously.

    I'll give it a go. Doesn't it need any oil? I read an article about using animal fat for mayo, and it said it didn't work with only animal fat...
