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!

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 ?

    • Squirmingitch, I forgot to mention best of luck to you during the storm! I hope you are safe and that your home isn't impacted too badly! I'm on the coast in SC so we will see some storms from it but nothing near as bad as what you will have. Take care and good luck.
    • SquirmingItch, I really appreciate you gathering info for me! To answer your questions, yes, I'm on Dapsone now and have been on it for about 4.5 weeks. I have been gluten free for the same amount of time. I started on 50 mg of Dapsone which didn't seem to help much. I spoke to my doctor about it and after about a week she raised it to 100 mg. Since then I did notice a huge improvement in both my rash and itch. I no longer have any active rashes and my itching isn't completely gone but it's very minimal. I have been getting weekly blood tests done and will soon be moving to monthly.  My DH skin biopsy was done before the gluten free diet and Dapsone. My results for the skin biopsy came back as inconclusive, but even with those results, my doctor was convinced I had DH. I specifically asked her about the fact that she took the biopsy directly from the lesion rather than next to it and if that affects the result. Her explanation was that if it's a fresh enough lesion that isn't scratched, there should be IgA antibodies present. But she said that an inconclusive result isn't surprising because the IgA antibodies come and go from the skin so quickly that it can be very difficult to get a positive result, even in someone who is positive.  That's when she decided to run the celiac blood panel on me. And even though those results came back positive for the deamidated gliadin and negative for tTg, she still is very convinced that I have DH. I am happy that my doctor seems to be certain, but I would just feel better if the results were more definitive. The one other thing I am waiting on is I have been asked to attend grand rounds at the local academic hospital in 2 weeks. I guess grand rounds is where all of the academic dermatologists and dermatopathologists get together to review certain complicated cases. They will meet with me, review all of my pictures, biopsies and blood tests. My situation has been so complicated so they asked me to come. I am hoping maybe then I will get some more answers. 
    • It sure is, it really is. 
    • shellyb, I have info. for you & you may yet be able to get an official dx from your dermatologist as she sounds like she would be willing to learn. If you are dx'd with dh it is definitive & no other testing is needed. You don't need to see a GI. Im in FL & have had a long day watching Tropical Storm Hermine & making preparations for it's track which is over where I live. I'm tired! I will have links for you to reputable medical info. on the rash but it make take me till tomorrow or even longer if we lose power.  I'll be back as soon as I can. Question: You're on Dapsone now? How long have you been on it? How is it working for you? Are you getting the proper testing at regular intervals to make sure it isn't doing bad things to you? Were you gluten free before the skin biopsy?
    • Thank you so much for your quick response, GFinDC. While I wouldn't be completely opposed to another skin biopsy, I already had 4 done (3 were done prior to my dermatologist suspecting DH) so I don't love the idea of  yet another hole and scar on my body. Plus, fortunately I don't have any fresh lesions now, which I believe is needed for the biopsy. I wish I would have known to see a GI before going gluten free but I was so desperate to get any relief that I started that and Dapsone as soon as my doctor mentioned it to me.  My rash is definitely symmetrical and I have it in all of the "classic" DH spots although it basically spread over my entire body. As much as I'd like a more formal diagnosis, I really don't think I can go through all of that again. It was so bad that not only was I getting no sleep but I had to change my sheets every morning because there was blood all over them. Sorry, TMI. The worst part is that this all developed during my ninth month of pregnancy and got much worse after I delivered my baby. So not only was I dealing with this insanely itchy rash but I had a newborn and a toddler to take care of.  My daughters' pediatrician did mention doing DNA testing on me first and then my daughters to see if there's any concern that they may be susceptible. I may just go that route for now. I was just curious if others have had similar test results to mine and how did their doctors treat it? Thanks again!
