One of the reasons I love having a blog is so I can put my recipes somewhere that I can find them easily.

There are mayonnaise recipes out there all over the place, and mine is based on this one: Homemade Mayonnaise from the Nourishing Gourmet.

This is my YouTube video for making mayonnaise with a stick (immersion) blender.

This site tells you all about the science of making mayonnaise and also gives 13 varieties of mayonnaise you can make simply by adding various flavorings. The Chipotle mayonnaise would be a favorite as would the Garlic mayonnaise.

Homemade Mayonnaise

Here are the ingredients I used today:

I melted the oils together and allowed them to cool to room temperature – that didn't take too long since I heated them just enough to melt the palm and coconut oil.

I put two egg yolks into my stick blender mixing cup, followed by the sea salt, vinegar and lemon juice.  I mixed that just for a few seconds with the stick blender.

Then I drizzled just a few drops of the oil into the egg yolk mixture, and hit with the stick blender for a couple of seconds.  Then I add more oil.  I kept adding just a little bit of oil until the mixture began to emulsify. Once it emulsifies, you can add in bigger amounts of oil at once and it will still emulsify.

NOTE TO SELF (April 28: When making mayonnaise, do not become overly confident once emulsion has occurred and dump 1/2 the oil in. That will ruin the mayonnaise and you will be very dismayed!)

My hubby and I are going on a picnic today!  I am baking chicken legs in the oven right now, I'm making faux-tatoe salad (hence the batch of mayonnaise) and I'm going to make some almond flour cupcakes of some kind.

I will try to get a Daily Report completed today or tomorrow.

    Where do you get your palm oil? Is it unrefined? Does this taste much like mayo from the store. I still haven’t been too satisfied w/ my mayos I’ve tried, yet. I really just want it to taste like the stuff I’m used to. I don’t like the evoo taste in most. Millie recommended Mac Nutt Macadamia oil, and I looked it up and it’s over $1/oz!!! Yikes, I need an alternative, no matter how nutritious and delicious it may be! 🙂 Thanks Starlene!
