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!!

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

    • Are you sure he didn't eat pizza or a cookie?  If you weren't there.....  just a thought.  And, is this his usual reaction to gluten?  Do you really know that it is from gluten..... I mean...positive he got some gluten and this happens?  For example - I realized after I ate something that it wasn't what I thought it was.... so I know my reaction from gluten for certain.   The thing is, it just seems extreme for a teeny amount of gluten.  I just don't want you to miss something because you blame it on gluten.  It's a natural thing to blame everything on gluten. I feel this is his reaction to gluten, he needs to learn to recognize that it is irrational and learn to manage it.  If that means he stays in his room with soft music and a punching bag.... no matter what the cause of this episode - you definitely need to talk about it.  Maybe several times.  I know with my boys, you might have to explain what concerns you and maybe a brief why it concerns you ( tho this behavior probably needs no " why "it worries you).   They may need to think about it for a while or give you a partial answer today and discuss more in depth tomorrow.
    • Potato chips are usually gluten-free. If there is a concern, it is in an added flavor. I haven't seen a problem except for some BBQ flavors, and even then rarely. Wheat must be declared on the label in Canada and the USA. Rye and Barley do not need to be declared in the US, but in practice they are not hidden. That leaves dextrose which is a pure sugar and is gluten-free no matter where from what it was derived. Potato chips are very high in salt. The potatoes themselves provide a lot of sugar through carbohydrates. Just saying...
    • Hi, Welcome. Have you taken your son to the doctor yet? If you believe gluten is his problem, then I suggest you talk with your doctor about getting him tested. Could he be behaving badly due to reasons other than diet?
    • Hello, my 10 year old son, who is celiac, ate some potato chips (which likely had wheat or dextrose as ingredients as they were flavored chips) today at a end of school year gathering. He became very argumentative and misplaced several items in his room and blamed his siblings and us. As the evening wore on, my son became increasingly irrational, yelling and screaming, saying that he felt fine and that he couldn't understand why he was acting badly. My husband and I had no success reasoning with him over the course of hours and eventually he ended up in his room and fell asleep. Tonight was a "severe" outburst with my son almost picking an argument with everything and anyone. It was extremely difficult just to be in the house with him as he makes "grumping" noises and is incorrigible when he gets into gluten. I'm wondering if anyone has experience with this age kid and the behavioral manifestations of accidentally eating things that contain gluten. My husband and I felt completely wiped out after this episode. I fear that my son's behavior, if not contained, will lead him to bad choices/ irrational choices and I know I can't be with him every minute of the day. After this episode passes in a few days, he will likely be reasonable but how do we get him to understand how he is when glutened? Should we bring up this episode and talk about it?
    • Barilla makes great tasting gluten free pasta, Etalia makes a great artisan style bread, Canyon Bakehouse makes great bagels and sandwich bread so your good to go there. Canyon also makes focaccia but I've never tried it and it couldn't possibly compare to my sisters focaccia.
