Mayonnaise

Mayonnaise

**It works best if  everything is room temperature.**

*3 egg yolks (preferably pastured)
*1 tsp REAL salt
*2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
*1 tsp organic prepared mustard or 1/4 tsp mustard powder
*1.5-2 cups oil of your choice – (Grapeseed, Sunflower, Safflower, Olive, Avocado, etc.)

*Put all ingredients (EXCEPT OIL) in a quart jar.
*Blend with a hand blender/stick until all ingredients are mixed.
*Add oil one Tablespoon at a time until it begins to look like mayo.  When it gets really thick, I change over to the whisk attachment and then, add oil until it is the consistency and taste we like.

Put a lid on the quart jar and store in the refrigerator.

If you don’t have a hand blender, you can make mayo in a blender on low speed.

You can add a few drops of stevia if you like your mayo to be more sweet like a salad dressing.  I add stevia and poppy seeds to make a dressing for cole slaw.

We use this recipe as is with no sweetener for deviled eggs and sweet potato salad.

This recipe is adapted from two different recipes that two different friends make.  I liked each one a little and so took the two recipes and took my favorite pats and came up with this one.  The possibilities are endless.  I know someone who puts many spices in their homemade mayo and it is good.  I prefer plain and then, add to make various dressings.

I use stevia and poppy seed to make a dressing for coleslaw.

We mix this with mustard to make a dressing for quinoa salad that is similar to potato salad.

This is actually parts of recipes from my friends, Shelley Cook and Lindsey Gremont.

I started out doing this on low in the vitamix, but now make it in a quart jar and store it in the same jar.  There is less waste and effort that way.

French Dressing by Hannah

2 Tbs+1 tsp White Wine Vinegar
1 ½ tsp Bragg liquid aminos
20 drops Clear Stevia
2 cloves garlic pressed (or tsp garlic powder)
2 Tbs tomato paste
1 Tbs water
¼ tsp onion
¼ tsp salt
¾ c oil (whatever kind you like best)

Put all ingredients in a blender and mix until WELL blended.
This will last a couple of weeks.(it never lasts that long around here) The longer it sits the better the taste.

We really like this with taco salad!
This dressing is a family favorite! Enjoy! :)
