Homemade Mayonnaise

Posted By on March 9, 2013

I really need to get going on posting more on my blog. My wife and I have really been changing our lifestyles over the last few years and it is something that I believe we should be proud of and should start sharing with the world.

Many people are becoming more food conscious and really care about the food that they eat each day. We have joined that movement and have begun making a lot of things that used to be bought in the store. Not only do homemade foods taste much better, they are usually much healthier. You can avoid having more processed foods in your diet and if you are careful, can minimize the danger of consuming GMOs. I say minimize because I think its gotten to the point of being near impossible to eliminate them unless you buy 100% organic certified, which we aren’t financially ready for.

To start off our homemade foods category of posts we are starting with home made mayo. We have been wanting tuna sandwiches for a while and tuna finally came down in price from where it has been. Looking at the labels of all the mayo containers, we found a plethora of ingredients that smell of GMO including soybean and canola oil. So we are going to make our own from now on.

We found a recipe and modified it so it was appealing to us.

– 1 egg yolk at room temp
– 2/3 cup olive oil
– pinch of salt
– 1-2 tablespoons of lemon juice OR apple cider vinegar
– 1-2 teaspoons of sugar

Use a whisk and mix together the yolk, lemon juice OR apple cider vinegar, sugar and salt. Add the oil very very slowly starting with drops and adding more quickly when it is thicker. Be careful not to add to much oil as it can get very oily in texture.

You can add any other garnishes you want including spices or garlic.
