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!

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!!

Connie

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

    • Hello, Often drugs that end in –artan are ARBs, and they work by blocking the angiotensin receptors. I’m not sure what the exact difference is between the two medications you mention, though. Have you called the manufacturer of losartan to see if any of the fillers contain gluten? It might be a good idea to know what those fillers are. In my drug book “dyspepsia” and “gastritis” are mentioned as side effects, but they did not drill down to the specificity of villous blunting. I did some googling, and in addition to what Knitty found, I came across this: Small Bowel Histopathologic Findings Suggestive of Celiac Disease in an Asymptomatic Patient Receiving Olmesartan “Although Rubio-Tapia et al are careful to avoid claiming a proven causal relationship between olmesartan therapy and the observed spruelike enteropathy, the data are highly suggestive of more than just a coincidental association. “They further suggest that a potential mechanism for the enteropathy could relate to inhibitory effects of angiotensin II receptor antagonists on transforming growth factor β action because transforming growth factor β is important in gut immune homeostasis. “Although anecdotal, these observations lead to the hypothesis that olmesartan, and perhaps other angiotensin II receptor antagonists, could be a cause of intraepithelial lymphocytosis in architecturally preserved proximal small intestinal mucosa.” (One of the patients in question was offered the opportunity to do a gluten-free diet, but he/she declined.) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3547582/ So, it looks like you are definitely on to something, and if this turns out to be a “thing,” would probably warrant dissemination on a wider scale. You didn't mention what your BP is with the medication or was without it, but please let your health care provider know if you do decide to discontinue your blood pressure medication. It's often recommended not to DQ suddenly, which can cause the BP to spike in some cases. Plumbago   ETA: Just because a drug can cause a particular side effect does not mean it does in your case. I just thought I'd add that, but nevertheless totally and completely understand the cause of concern in any case.  
    • Lol funny thing me and my dietician were talking about things that could also cause villi blunting years ago. He brought up a interesting one, he had a case where someone was taking massive amounts of Metamucil several times a day, He said it was like 2-4 tsp 3 times a day and making into hot gel drinks for weight loss to feel full. Anyway what this had done "scrubbed" his intestines so much with the abrasive fiber it had actually damaged the walls and blunted the villi.  He compared it roughly scrubbing with a loofah several times a day and it had like a fine sandpaper slowly eroded the insides of his intestines faster then it could heal.  He says because of that he would never suggest anyone to take the full dose of psyllium husk for longer then a week straight before rotating off of it.
        Not medical advice posterboy and this is a dangerous things to play with I know, but with your BP perhaps try to help regulate it with cinnamon oil, and watching and playing with your salt intakes of potassium and sodium. These tend to effect my blood flow and how I feel often. I am unsure if BP related, mine always checks great when I do check it. But Cinnamon is one thing I can not live without, I take several tbsp a day of it or a few drops of the EO. I have been doing this for over a decade, before that and when I do not, I start feeling cold, not wanting to move, and just want to curl up in blankets...no clue why if it is health, blood, neurological, or termogenic.
    • Is it the rectum or do you think it's more in your tailbone? As I get intermittent tailbone pain that is excruciating a couple times a month.
    • She may be one of those people who got diagnosed only via blood. Some tests can come back false positive. Or maybe only via biopsy and it turns out she had H. Pylori. Who knows. Absolutely could happen though.   One of the things that surprised me too was when my doc said it can weeks to months for symptoms to develop on a gluten challenge. I always had this image of getting so imminently sick that there was no question about the connection with gluten.   
    • Yea. I hope she isn't like one of my blood and biopsy diagnosed relatives who then had a gene test that showed she didn't have one of those 2 most common genes.  She was then told it was a misdiagnosis and went back to eating gluten. She is young so she could also be in what they call the 'Honeymoon' period that used to cause doctors to think celiac could be outgrown.  In young adults it can seem celiac has resolved because the person can consume gluten for a time before the antibodies start causing symptoms again. Pure conjecture on my part.
