One Minute Mayonnaise!

One Minute Mayonnaise!

I used to HATE mayonnaise.

Well to be quite honest I still don’t love it.  I probably use it a few times a month in my tuna salad or a dressing but it’s one thing my Hubby has to have in the fridge.

Like most people he eats it on sandwiches, with broccoli, on burgers etc.  I used to buy an organic one for him and he liked it okay.  However, when I tried my hand at making homemade mayo everyone agreed it was the best ever!   So I thought I’d share just how simple and quick it is to make the popular condiment.

mayo

Step one – Gather your supplies.

A room temperature 1 egg, 1 tsp. dijon mustard (with no sugar), 1/2 a lemon, 1/4 tsp. sea salt and 1 cup of avocado oil.  You can also use walnut oil, macadamia oil or a light olive oil.  An immersion blender will be used in this recipe but you can also use a high speed blender. You have to drizzle the oil in slowly so it will take much longer.

Step 2 – Place all your ingredients into a mason jar.

Step 3 – Stick the immersion blender into the jar and blend at the highest speed.

Lift the immersion blender up and down while mixing a few times and watch as the emulsification occurs!

Store it in the fridge for up to a week and use on sandwiches, in dressings, salads, etc.!

QUESTIONS – 

  • Mayo, yay or nay?  
  • Have you made mayo before?  
  • What’s a food you used to dislike until you made it yourself?  

 

Flavoring your coffee

In the past I used to start by day by adding coffee creamer to my cup of joe.  You know, the really yummy ones like Creme Brulee, Cinnamon Bun, White Chocolate Raspberry.  Mmm… they were good!  I always knew it wasn’t all that healthy but I figured since it was just a little bit and it was non-dairy it wasn’t doing much harm.  Then I began to learn a little more about the creamy coffee addition I used daily.
