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 ?

    • I was only asking because when ferritin is low that you can experience hair loss/fatigue etc. even if your other iron levels are in range. This just happened to me so I thought I would share just in case it helps you. Ferritin should be above 50 to be optimal, not just "in range."  I've been on iron supplements and much better now. This may not be your problem at all, but I would have them check your ferritin levels. Low iron or anemia is common with celiac. The ferritin test is measuring how much iron is stored in your body. FYi: Iron binding capacity is really telling you how much protein your liver is making in order to carry that iron around. Usually, iron binding capacity will be higher in the range when iron is low. Edit: Also my blood pressure was low when my ferritin level got very low.
    • Hello I'm happy to join, any help is greatly appreciated as it can be difficult by times for sure. Unfortunately, I have been told my doctor has definitely not been doing anything correctly and very backwards about Alot of things. I live in canada, and there are celiac support groups I have found but I am about 2 hours away from any. I live in a pretty rural area. Although,  I have still received some help from them , they prefer a diagnosis before helping out to much. My doctor has me on a waiting list to see a gastrointestinal specialist but whenever I called her office to inquire about an appointment time I was told there was a very long wait and that I was considered to be a non emergency. So I am waiting to get an appointment. I have seen a dermatoligist for some of my rashes and she said it was dermatitis and gave me different creams for them.  It is frustrating because I don't know how to go about getting a actual diagnosis besides this biopsy. I was told to request a different specialist, but supposedly there is a waiting period for most in our area. 
    • Thanks for all of the replies. I've just found out I'm not getting to see a dietician because of not having a definite diagnosis which is another blow. I've had loads of bloods done but they just say they're all normal. I did have low vitamin D and high parathyroid but it's sorted itself out after a course of high dose vitamin D and they're not checking it again for a year. No chance of getting referred to endocrinology, gastro won't do it and neither will my gp. I've tried giving up coffee and all fizzy juice and it hasn't made a difference. I'm exhausted and scared and still have no clue what to do next. My gp has zero experience dealing with this type of thing - last time I was there she said it could be because I've restricted my diet too much and I should eat more gluten-free replacement products - everything I've read online says this is the worst thing to do! I'm asking for a copy of the last blood results this week so I can go through them myself but other than that I'm pretty stuck. 
    • I really am iffy on talking about this side of my gluten issues, I think I am about to ruin my reputation on this forum coming about as some extreme crazy guy saying this but I wanted to get this off my chest and perhaps see if anyone else might share a similar trauma. I get emotional recalling it, this side of my reactions, as it is most ingrained and very traumatizing experience, and I am not proud of it as the mentality I have now disgust me but I am going to come out about it. One of the scariest things in this world is when your own mind turns against you, when you can not think about what you want to think about, when you can not do what you know you should be able to do. When I got glutened really bad these where things I felt with my own mind would start looping, and thoughts would not come together. I would loose comprehension, feel like I know I should be able to think about something but my mind was not working. The same thing looped over and over and over like a broken record, This led to anger, anxiety, depression, panic, top it off with loss of feeling in my hands and feet, and the pains in the gut......it was a nightmare. I would go as far as beating my head against walls and punching them out of frustration as to why my own body and mind where not working, I just wanted it to end the pain to stop. I still have scars on my fist from punching into a nail in a stud once and kept going.....I scared everyone and myself distanced my self from loved ones. And started running a bucket list accepting that I was going to die soon. Hell to this day parts of the brain damage seem to be permanent as I can no longer do computer programing or some forms of math, they just no longer make any sense or connect. Then we learned what was causing it, and once the symptoms started to fade, I would get very angry if someone in the shared house did something stupid and got me sick again. The fear of going back to that caused violent and drastic actions to get away from what was making me sick. The sheer fear of my own mind turning on me led me to drastic actions to prevent it, throwing everything away I thought could make me sick, making sure no one else used that kitchen, used freezer paper and gloves when fixing my foods and working in there. I really destroyed and burned all bridges I had then and alienated myself from others. In the end it motivated me to learn how to cook, to get and renovate my own apartment in a building downtown, and start a business to pay for my new diet, by selling safe food to others with this issues locally at farmer markets. But it changed me on a very deep level, that traumatic experience to this day I have a issue looking at others and dealing with other humans who eat that stuff.......the stuff that breaks my mind and body so horrifically. If I have to compare it to something its like watching aliens drinking antifreeze and eating poison.....it causes a subconscious level of disgust and slight envy. I really can not even look at the stuff without recall what it does and feeling a twitch. I know I am the alien here, but it feels vise versa, and I look down on the normal people as odd creatures.  I go to the store and find myself overly avoiding contamination, keeping stuff in my own bags, asking the cashier to scan and bag it as I pass it not letting it touch that flour I see on the belt. I am hyper sensitive to the stuff I know and that fear semi dominates my mind as crazy as it sounds.  I am recovering and am forcing myself to try to mingle with other humans overlooking that one thing, but that deep rooted trauma still flares up as a protective measure especially around foods.  I could talk on and on about the other side effects but this one is the hardest to talk about it, and I feel others might be able to relate to it.    
    • Time.  You need time to heal.  Yeah, I am like a broken record!  😄 So...Lycra is your best friend for now (that and old baggy sweats!).  Hang in there!  Hugs!
