Have you ever wondered how to make homemade mayonnaise? I know, mayonnaise is probably one of those things that you’ve been buying at the grocery store all of your life. But, like many condiments, it can be made by hand for a fraction of the cost. One of the reasons I enjoy making our own condiments is that I have control over the ingredients.
How to Make Homemade Mayonnaise
We’ve been making homemade mayonnaise for years. It tastes so much better than the store bought kind and it’s very easy to make. It requires only three simple ingredients that you probably have on hand in the kitchen right now.
Please make sure you use fresh, organic eggs in this whole egg mayonnaise recipe because this contains no preservatives and is not cooked. It’s very important to use the freshest ingredients you can. If you don’t have your own chickens, you may be able to buy from someone locally. If not, be sure that you look for organic eggs at the grocery store.
To make homemade mayonnaise, you will need to have an immersion blender. You may have also heard these referred to as immersion blenders. It has the speed and focus needed to make mayonnaise. You may be able to get it to thicken up with a whisk or electric beater, but I’ve never had much luck with those methods.
This must be refrigerated. There are no preservatives so you cannot leave it out and it will only stay good for about 3-7 days or so. We use ours in pasta salad, on sandwiches, and on burgers. It’s also delicious in homemade deviled eggs and potato salad.
The good thing about this mayonnaise is that it is both Whole 30 and Paleo. Most of the commercially prepared mayonnaises contain soybean oil and soy is not allowed on either the Paleo or Whole 30 diet. So, you can use it in any of these recipes without a problem.
Some mayonnaise recipes use mustard, but if you’re wondering how to make white mayonnaise, follow this recipe.
The most important thing to remember when making homemade mayonnaise is to drizzle the oil in SLOWLY. Do not just pour it all in or it won’t thicken and turn into mayonnaise.
