How to Make Homemade Mayo


So, I have failed miserably on my recent Whole30 journey. But I am bound and determined to finish it with strength and dignity. This week, that included making homemade mayonnaise. I don't use a lot of mayo for myself, but when I need it, I need it. 

I must say, I don't think I'll ever buy store bought mayo ever again. This mayo turned out incredibly thick and creamy. I used a duck egg instead of a chicken egg, and I think that helped. It's just a few simple ingredients — an egg, oil (a light tasting oil, like avocado, light EVOO, etc), salt, and lemon juice!

Once I am off of the Whole30, I'm going to try to add Apple Cider Vinegar and some organic evaporated cane juice (sugar). I used a food processor, because that's what I had, and it worked amazingly well!!!

This recipe came from the Whole30 website.

HOMEMADE MAYO

Ingredients:
1-1/4 cup of light olive oil, divided
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 to 1 lemon, juiced

Instructions:

•Place the egg, 1/4 cup of olive oil, mustard powder, and salt in a mixing bowl, blender, or food processor. Mix thoroughly.
•While the food processor or blender is running (or while mixing in a bowl with a stick blender), slowly (very slowly!) drizzle in the remaining cup of olive oil.
•After you’ve added all the oil and the mixture has emulsified, add lemon juice to taste, stirring gently with a spoon to incorporate.
