It's super easy to make with a Braun handblender, and egg, and a lot of oil!! ;)

Connie,

Do you have the recipe for mayonnaise??

I am having trouble finding mayo that is soy free. But I do have a hand blender and if I could make my own then that would be great. I only use mayo for sandwiches and tuna, but I am trying so hard to avoid soy that I would like to find a mayo recipe that would work for me.

Also, if you refridgerate it, how long will it last before going bad??

God bless,

Mariann

Does anyone know if mayo can be made without eggs?

Dessa, I'm pretty sure that eggs are absolutely essential to a traditional mayonnaise, but if you're concerned about salmonella, I believe pasteurized egg product will work. Or, if you need to avoid all eggs but you can have soy, I have seen several recipes that use tofu to make a mayonnaise-like spread. I hope this helps!

My son uses" Community Eggless Mayonaise", from Spectum Organics. They told me it was also gluten-free.

You can also use sour cream in place of mayonnaise for most things. (Particularly organic sour cream, which tends to be less solid than the "regular store brand".) I like it better than mayo for tuma. (I use a yogurt/sour cream mixture for tuna, and it adds just a touch of tang that's all good. :-) )

I really don't like sour cream, but I can get used to it! I am sometimes feeling pretty desperate for variety!

Miracle Whip is also fine. It's just the traditional stuff and I've never had a problem with it. That is one of the things that I was thrilled not to have to give up, since it's my favourite thing to dip things in next to ranch. Due to my dairy allergies, I've had to give up ranch :(.

Mariann, here is a recipe for mayo:

3 egg yolks

2 tsp lemon juice, plus more to taste

any acceptable oil (pick one that is relatively flavorless, like canola, grapeseed, or vegetable)

salt to taste

sugar to taste

You can make it by hand with a soft whisk, or in a food processor, or with a hand blender. Combine yolks with the lemon juice and whip until pale. While whisking or blending constantly, drizzle in oil until you reach the desired consistancy, you may need 2 or 3 cups of oil (the more oil you add the thicker it will become). Season to taste with salt, sugar and additional lemon juice.

FYI, this doesn't taste like comercially prepared mayo, but if you like hollandaise sauce, you'll like this. The preservatives and vinegars they put in the commercially prepared stuff makes it sweeter than this kind.

Here are a few ideas for you:

To make your own tartar sauce, combine the above "mayo" with minced sweet pickles or cornichons, chives, garlic, parsley and if you like, tarragon and dill.

To make a dip for fried shrimp or crab cakes, mix the above mayo with garlic, pureed or minced roasted red pepper, minced basil and shallots.

For an herbed sandwich spread, or dip, mix the above mayo with garlic, basil, chives, tarragon, parsley, shallots.

For all of these you should season to taste with lemon juice, salt & pepper.

Enjoy!

Hi Mariann,

Sorry it's taken me soo long to get back to you! I had my baby last week--a beautiful boy! :P

Thanks kejohe for the recipie ideas! They look great!

I usually just use one whole egg and about a cup+ of sunflower oil for the basic recipe. The main thing is to get a lot of air into the mix by slowly pumping the hand blender up and down. If it disn't look like anything, just add more oil and keep going! It should start to look like mayo with enough oil and air! You can make it really, really thick if you like.

It does take a bit of practice ;)

After I get the basic mayo going, then I add what ever flavor I wish. I like pressed garlic, salt, lemon juice, sugar and dill.

Good luck with the mayo!!

Hi Connie! I have never tried making mayo using a whole egg, I was taught by my chef/professors that it wouldn't work because of the albumin in the whites being a different consistancy than the yolk. However, I have found them to be wrong an a few other issues as well, though not tt many. It sounds more like a salad dressing mix because you talk about getting the "air" in the mixture. The yolk method emulsifies the oil and the yolk without air, so it's really easy for first time mayo makers, because you don't need the speed of a mixer, you can just use a whisk if you want.

The only thing I want to mention for everyone elses benifit, is that when using egg yolks, like in my recipe, it is essential to add the lemon juice or other acid (such as vinegar or wine, or a combination) at the begining. It is necessary to denature the protiens so that they become able to emulsify with the oil. I think when you use the egg with the white, the whites do the work of emulsification, so you can get away with adding it later, if you mixter if fast enough, but I don't know how that would stand up over time, or if it would begin to separate. Connie could probably answer that question. Also, drizzle in the oil slowly, so the eggs have a chance to blend well.

Good Luck all!

Connie, I'm so glad to see someone else uses sunflower oil and dill weed. I love dill weed in everything, potato salad, cole slaw, whatever. And the sunflower oil leaves a nice taste without the heavy tast of olive oil. However---we use olive oil for all other oil uses. Give your baby boy a big smooch from all of us. Shirley

It works great for me, probably because I was never taught... Kinda a happy blunder ;) (You should see how I make a cheese sauce!! :o )

The mayo doesn't seperate, lasts for days, but you do need a high speed hand mixer.

Thanks for all your input!

Connie

    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
