Homemade Mayo! I never even knew you could make it homemade! What was I thinking?
When I first started the AIP Paleo diet, & eggs were eliminated, not to mention lots of other things I had been used to, I was not able to have mayo.
I was never a big mayo person anyway! But I do need it for Chicken Salad, Potato Salad, Slaw etc…So as soon as I could reintroduce eggs I wanted to make mayo for my Paleo Chicken salad.
When full AIP I used avocado mayo, which is good, but I wanted the real thing. If you haven’t made homemade mayo, you are missing out. It is soooo good. I can eat it by the spoon.
As I said before, I never really liked mayo. Maybe it was all the “junk” that they put in the store-bought kind. It was obviously telling my body not to eat it. Next time you go for mayo, read the label, you probably will not eat it ever again. I know I won’t!
Now I eat it with a spoon! It is so good!
If you have farm-fresh eggs as I do, they are already room temperature. If not, you need to let it come to room temperature.
Blend it just a little, then start adding the oil slowly. I prefer avocado oil. You can also use macadamia, almond, or walnut oil. EVOO can be a little strong.
You can use lite olive oil, but from what I have read, it’s usually a blend & not pure Olive Oil, this is why I prefer avocado oil.
The avocado oil has a little green tint. It comes from avocados, what do you expect? But it tastes sooo good. Doesn’t that look delicious! It literally takes less than 2 min. to make. Why would you ever buy mayo again?
It is so versatile, you can add garlic, herbs, whatever you like! Use your imagination! Or just go plain! It’s so dang good!
The 1st time I made it, it was so cool to watch it become mayo. Like some kind of science project! Make sure if you have kids or grandchildren to let them be a part of it! They will think it is so cool!
