is there any acceptable commerical mayo (such as Hellman's will olive oil) that is paleo approved? Would like the convenience of that as apposed to having to always making it.
Could coconut oil be used to make mayonnaise? I used olive oil the first time I made it and it was good but had a strong olive oil taste, not always what I want. Anyone ever try it?
I have done it, the key is to let the coconut oil melt and become liquid which you can do in the microwave by heating it up for a bit. However, if you heat up the coconut oil, remember that you must not let it get too hot or else it will cook the... (more)
Can people recommend a type and brand of oil that they like for their mayo? I have tried avocado oil and it gives the oil a green tint, which might be ideal for upcoming St. Patrick's day, but it's not appetizing for tuna fish. My goto now... (more)
So I'm ready to make some home made Mayo. I finally found a common store brand (I think it was Kraft) that used mostly olive oil, but still has bad stuff, including PUFA. But that's not what this post is about. In the process, I'm going to... (more)
Hey there, I am fairly new to Paleo and this is my first post on these forums, so I'm hoping you'll bear with me. For a first question this is going to be especially loaded. It's more like 4 questions in one. Yesterday I bought a fair amount of... (more)
I've made mayo twice in the past and I had no problem getting it to emulsify. Recently, I tried to make it again with both an immersion blender and by hand. I tried 5 times and I just couldn't get it to emulsify. I used both avocado and macadamia... (more)
After 2 **ing frustrating attempts to make mayo, I now have a canning jar full of viscous goo... any suggestions how I can at least salvage the ingredients and use this up? (and yes, I did try to re-emulsify it with both the boiling water and... (more)
I have tried making homemade mayo 4 times and I've had enough... so please do not say it's easy. I have done it in the vitamix, with a whisk, and twice with an immersion blender I paid $60 for just because the first two methods did not work. Is... (more)
Drizzling the oil in is the key. I watched my grandma make it about a billion times growing up. She just used a handheld mixture-she always told me that the only way to make it right is to DRIZZLE the oil in. If you pour it, you'll F it up.
I've been pasteurizing eggs by bring water up to ~140F and adding eggs for 3min but it's a pain. Is there an easier way to pasteurize? An alternative would be to find a good egg-free mayo recipe if possible. EDIT: I would also accept a recipe... (more)
Hi, has anyone tried Soy-free Veganaise as a dressing/mayo alternative? I believe this should be 100% acceptable on the Paleo diet but I haven't seen any discussion in regard to it. Thank you!
I don't use this product but I might in a pinch. I find it easy enough to make my own with macadamia nut oil or real 100% olive oil (not the crap "olive oil" you find in the grocery store) cut with yogurt to mellow out of the strong taste of the... (more)
How long will homemade mayo last in the refrigerator? Organic mayo from the supermarket seems to last a while. Is there some way to tweak the recipe to last a week if it doesn't? Or can I freeze it?
Sally Fallon has recommended this brand but can anyone confirm that they use hi oleic sunflower oil?
I am using this mayo daily: Could someone comment on it???s healthyness? I???m eating it like its tasty fish oil right now, I hope i???m not missing some problem with it. I???m including the (huge) pictures here so you can read the nutritional... (more)
Yesterday while I was using egg whites to make a sugar-free merengue I decided to attempt to make mayonaise. I used the egg yolks from my farmers' eggs and about 1 1/4 cup of extra light olive oil. I added some apple cider vinegar, salt, and a... (more)
I have found this mayonnaise on Amazon, and it looks pretty healthy but very expensive. Ingredients: * Certified Organic, (Raw) Centrifuged Extra Virgin Olive Oil * Certified Organic, (Raw) Unrefined Sesame Seed Oil * Certified Organic, (Raw)... (more)
Anyone have any ideas? Obviously regular store bought mayo has junky soybean and sugar, but I'd love to find something that tastes good in tuna salad or chicken salad. If anyone has a good homemade Paleo-friendly recipe for mayo, please share!... (more)
I've been making my own mayonnaise for years, but since switching to a more ancestrally-appropriate diet, I've found that making mayo with olive oil doesn't quite do it for me. I want my mayonnaise to taste like Duke's, not like Il Duce's. I've... (more)
Chris Masterjohn says Macadamia oil. He knows more about oil than the Rockefellers.
Hey guys, I'm pretty much completely paleo, but on my salads I tend to use a lot of condiments. I'll get a bucket-load of vegetables, then some fish, but for the dressing I use: Balsamic Vinegar Sriracha Hot Sauce Yellow Mustard Should I... (more)
I have made mayo twice and am about to give it up. I know that isn't a lot but I just can't afford to waste expensive oils trying different recipes. I have used EVOO realizing that wasn't the right one. I should have used at least a really light... (more)
So I am thinking avocado oil, but many recommend macadamia, I would love to use a nut oil, but would that have phytic acid in the oil since the nuts have them. And coconut oil and lard I think would turn to cement when refrigerated. Also coconut... (more)
Make your own. You will get the perfect product hands down because you know what you're putting in there. Tinkering a bit after you've made the first batch will give you exactly what you like best in the mayosphere. Olive oil works very well...... (more)
