Homemade Mayo

37 posts in this topic

On the topic of homemade mayo, for those of you who may not know, you can make hundreds of kinds of aioli with all sorts of flavours such as infusing some chipotle en adobo or lemon garlic or saffron. There is no limit to what you can make. There should also be no reason whatsoever to cook your homemade mayonnaise for those of you who are not into that sort of thing.

I have not been able to find a mayo without soy, and started searching for mayo recipes.

http://www.seriousea...mayonnaise.html

This was super easy and the mayo came out great.

Before I found dairy/egg/soy free mayonnaises (Earth Balance Olive Oil and Vegenaise w/ Olive Oil), I made mayo with raw cashews, lemon juice, honey and salt in the blender. It was not as good as the Earth Balance and Vegenaise dairy/egg/soy free versions, but I had something for sandwiches (and brocolli) until I found those 2 brands.

I was using a soy free canola oil mayo but I am now reacting to Xanthan gum and have not ( as of yet) found a mayo with out it :wacko: So I am going to attempt to make my own . ^_^

This is my Mayo recipe: 1/2C light olive oil, 1/2 C water, 1 Tab vinegar, 1 Tab lemon juice, 1/2 tsp dry mustard, 1/2 tsp sugar, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp Xanthan, 1 tsp sweet rice flour....put all in blender and blend till it is creamy (I usually shake the mix a couple times in the jar to be sure it is blending everything).... it will thicken in the frig...This is the basic mayo recipe.... If you want to make it more like Ranch Dressing, add....1/2 tsp parsley flakes, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp onion powder and a pinch of thyme.... .I have a Hamilton Beach blender that uses a regular mason jar size screw on blades, so I use the blades and screw them on a pint jar and use that on the blender....that way I can just use the pint jar and lid to store the mayo in....

I have made mayo for years the way Mama did:

Start with 1 egg, beaten with electric mixer until light yellow

Add 2 cups oil (I use Wesson, but it will work with olive or corn to avoid soy) This is important: add a drop of oil at a time while beating until it begins to emulsify. Then pour in a very thin stream until all used.

Add salt and lemon juice to your taste. If it tastes too oily, you probably need more salt.

At this point, add any flavorings you like such as mustard powder, chili powder, or finely crushed fresh herbs.

a1956chill......I have not tried it without the xanthan.....perhaps you could increase the sweet rice flour a little and see....or even sub some gelatin....I've heard gelatin will thicken dressings.....

KikiB......I use light olive oil.....and real apple cider vinegar....watch out for vinegar....read the label to be sure it isn't made from grain, or something other than apples.....I use Heinz apple cider vinegar..... and I look at the label to be sure it isn't made from something else..... even Heinz has "apple cider" vinegar made from something else too....I even watch out for olive oil....some of them are not totally olive oil....they are a mix......

I don't use raw egg...I've had good success using powdered egg white. Since we don't eat a LOT of mayonnaise, I don't worry about the Omega-6 in the sunflower oil, but light olive oil works well as does avocado oil. Avocado oil is awfully expensive though!

We buy regular Duke's mayo, it is simply the best.

This is the recipe I use....No eggs, no cooking..... gluten-free Mayo 1/2 Cup oil, 1/2 Cup water, 1 Tablespoon Vinegar, 1 Tablespoon lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon Xanthan, 1 teaspoon sweet rice flour....put all in a blender and blend till it is creamy, it takes a while ....This is the basic mayo.....you can add other seasonings to make it a variety....One type I make I call Ranch...I add 1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon onion powder, and a pinch to thyme...it will thicken in the frig and it will keep 2 to 3 weeks in the frig....Instead of using the blender jar one of the things I do is measure all the ingredients in a pint canning jar, then I screw on my Hamilton Beach blender blades on the top of the jar, and blend it right in the pint jar...while I am blending the mayo I remove the jar and shake it a couple times to make sure everything is being blended.....by putting it in the jar I'm going to store it in I don't have to transfer it from the blender....that way I don't have to bother cleaning out the blender jar.....I don't remember where I got this recipe, but I sure have used it allot, and it makes a nice mayo....

I am going to make this today,,, I have a question .. You add the ingredients all at once to the blender?? not the oil one drop at a time like other mayo recipes ?

    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.  
    • I think that we have to remember that celiacs often develop intolerances due to our  damaged guts.  Our guts do not ncessarily heal either (usually adults) for  a variety of reasons even if their symptoms improve (see links below).   Nuts are just plain hard to digest.   I can not tolerate almonds, but can handle walnuts and cashews in small amounts.  I can eat peanuts too, but resort to Peanutbutter after a Glutening as it is easier to digest (maybe I have to learn to chew better!  😀)  My nut symptoms have  nothing to do with gluten as I have purchased certified gluten-free nuts and suffered with the same symptoms.  .   https://www.verywell.com/celiac-disease-when-will-your-small-intestine-recover-562341 http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/treatment/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23936873 i call the manufacturer when I suspect the manufacturer is sharing the line or if I just want to know.  I bought some Black English walnuts and called the company.  Those are the only nuts they process and they do not have any flavored nuts.   if you really want to test your theory out, buy some nuts from Nuts.com (certified gluten-free).   See if you get a reaction or ask your GI to retest your antibodies (which should be done annually anyway).   I just hate to have Planters get a bum rap when you do not really know for sure.......😥
