Posted on 03/29/2014 3:00:47 PM PDT by kingattax
If bourbon is the social lubricant of the South, then mayonnaise is the culinary ball bearings. It makes your deviled eggs, chicken salads, potato salads, pimiento cheese, and tomato sandwiches sing. So why master homemade mayonnaise? For starters, its healthier and tastes better than store-bought (yes, even Dukes). Plus, making mayo will make your grandmothers heart full.

Last line of the recipe...”use within three days.” That won’t work in the POF household. We use a little on weekends for sandwiches and that’s about it.
Why? I am pretty sure that mayonnaise did not exist till after God cursed the earth.
Think about it.
Instead of using hot-sauce, slice up a Hungarian Wax Pepper (and optionally 1/16th tsp of cyanne) and drop them in the vinegar / lemon-juice... let them soak for 3 or 4 days before using.
(When you get ready to use the vinegar/lemon-juice, scoop out the peppers [and their seeds] before using.)
My grandma has a good recipe -- it's good for a pretty long time.
A cousin of mine worked in a mayonnaise factory around 40 years ago and will not eat mayonnaise to this day and after hearing his stories, neither will I or any one in my family.
Not me-—Hellman’s has been satisfying me for 50 years.
I make mayonnaise and it has lasted up to three weeks in the refrigerator.
Never lasts longer then that but that is because it is eaten
Banana sandwiches would be inedible without mayonnaise.
I have never had home made tho I remember our high school science teacher, Doc. Couch told us how to make it and assured us it was much better.
Uugh! If you are going to bother making mayo, make it with olive oil; light or medium. Once in a while I will make a basil mayo... Great with leftover duck sandwiches
I make homemade mayo, but the problem is refrigeration. It gets very hard and not at all spreadable with refrigeration. Any solutions for keeping is spreading?
What the heck is this, a Harry Potter potions class? ;)
I know, knowing when it's going to break is best viewed in hind-sight. But that's the challenge. Broken mayo can be fixed, but it takes practice.
You knew I'd have to hit this thread. Hope you and yours are doing great. JT producing any grandbabies for you yet?
Harmless: I make it in the blender.
Johnny: so it is the air that makes it stiff? I thought it was the chilling of the oil.
I have one granddaughter about 2.5 years old, Piper Noel, and she’s the cutest thing ever. The youngest is also married, to an army sergeant but no babies there yet. He has been in Korea for a year and will be back soon. Watch this space (or a similar one) for an announcement.
Hey dear. How you doing?
I use about 1.5 cups of oil per egg, but that is the thing. I think the oil does get stiff in the fridge. I use a national brand of oil.
I’ll say it right now: I don’t like olive oil. Most of what I’ve tasted is too overpowering and takes over the flavor of what it is supposed to be enhancing.
It may be stiffer when made with a blender then a whisk. You can also add a little more fluid to thin it out a bit.
I’m fine. My back problems were cured, suddenly, on March 30 last year. So that is resolved. But, I am terribly, terribly homesick. I miss my kids, my grandbaby, spring, we have outlasted our friends here and our internet service is crappy to the point of being almost unworkable.
It would be better if we had enough $ to fly home during the summers.
Things will get better. This is a great job. I have 11 students from 7 different countries. They are very polite and fun. We are affecting Bible translation and people are being saved. That is the point.
Care to share some of those stories? I’m quite interested.
If all the stories that could be told were told, no one would eat or drink anything that they did not get out of the ground. Ever.
The smell made he and other new workers sick.
The process was not as hygienic as one would expect.
There was a focus on keeping a certain flying incest’s larva out of the process and that was not always as successful as one might expect.
You can also add a little bit of water... very little at a time, or it might break.
Finally a mayonnaise recipe that does not taste like lemon flavored oil.
I used to make home made mayo back when I was a newly wed with a new home. In my lovely Osterizer kitchen machine.
Then one day, I got the brilliant idea that I could pop the air pocket (signaled by a change in motor pitch) without turning it off.
This resulted in an explosion of fresh mayo into my face and pretty much everywhere else in my freshly painted kitchen. The oil soaked into the paint and eventually required fresh sealer and paint to rid the splotching.
I don’t do that anymore...
Nope, I’m over here sitting on top of the hill at Hillcrest International School. In front of me is Lake Sentani and to my back is Mount Cyclops.
I will try the water this week.
And? Lets hear them!. Just like hotdogs! All stories.
OK I read it.
Yes, it is. I am thankful that my 2 grands live here and one of my greats lives here and the other one in Athens. God bless.
So sad for you and more mayonnaise for me.
I can enjoy mayonnaise with my tuna salad sandwiches and egg sandwiches. I can enjoy mayonnaise with my deviled eggs. I can enjoy mayonnaise with my artichokes. I can enjoy mayonnaise with my home-made tartar sauce. I can enjoy mayonnaise with my green eggs and ham. And you can enjoy no mayonnaise--not even on a nice juicy BBQ'd hamburger made with home ground chuck arm shoulder. So sad for you.
Make your own and you will know you made the "Best" food on Earth.
invisible ink ?
flying incest ?
Who has a recipe for home-made Miracle Whip?
“A cousin of mine worked in a mayonnaise factory around 40 years ago and will not eat mayonnaise to this day and after hearing his stories, neither will I or any one in my family.”
I am the same way with Fig Newtons. Read whatever you want into that.
Would include some amount of prayer..?
No the wife wanted to read this later,
Add a tablespoon or so of whey from real, unflavored yogurt. It’s the liquid that collects on top.
God bless you! :)
The whole point to making homemade mayonnaise is to escape the unhealthy canola oil. Canola oil is GMO and always befouled and rancid. Bad PUFAS cause heart disease and inflammation.
Here is a much better recipe.
20 second Mayonnaise
You need a hand blender for this.
The worlds laziest mayonnaise recipe:
Prep time: 20 Seconds
Total time: 20 Seconds
Yield: 1 cup
Crack a pastured egg into your immersion blender container. Dont even bother to separate the yolk. Add two teaspoons of dijon mustard, a tablespoon of lemon juice, and a pinch of salt. Pour in 200ml of good quality olive oil. Put hand blender to the very bottom of the container and blend until it thickens into mayonnaise.
Not canola oil. The more I know of it, the less I like it. Instead use 100% Italian olive oil, which is more expensive than blends, but definitely worth it for flavor; or at a minimum, use grape seed oil. If you are adventurous, use delicious, unrefined avocado oil, which is not too pricey.
“Like all modern vegetable oils, canola oil goes through the process of caustic refining, bleaching and degumming all of which involve high temperatures or chemicals of questionable safety. And because canola oil is high in omega-3 fatty acids, which easily become rancid and foul-smelling when subjected to oxygen and high temperatures, it must be deodorized. The standard deodorization process removes a large portion of the omega-3 fatty acids by turning them into trans fatty acids. As much as 40% of the oil is TFAs.”
Next, while you might be able to buy pasteurized egg yolks, I am willing to take the risk that the vast majority of fresh egg yolks are fine, with no hazardous bacteria.
The best flavor of hot sauce to add to mayonnaise is Louisiana hot sauce, which seems to be designed for use in mayonnaise and salad dressing.
It also enhances the flavor a lot to put in a pinch or two of paprika.
You don’t need the immersion blender container. Use a large glass or small bowl. Big strong jelly jar water glasses work perfectly.
You need healthy eggs - cheap ones should,not he eaten raw.
