How to Make Mayonnaise {Vlog!}

Today I have a video for you! I’m so excited to show you how to make mayonnaise because homemade mayo is so easy and good for you!

In this video you will find out:

  • How to quickly mix up a batch of mayo in your own kitchen
  • What blend of oils I like to use in my mayo
  • What my favorite brand of coconut oil is
  • What I add to  my mayo so it stays fresh for weeks!

Are you ready? (Note: this video was filmed, um, months ago, thus there’s no sign or or mention of baby #4! Oh, and don’t miss the credits–they’ll make you chuckle)

 Why would you want to learn how to make mayonnaise?

Avoid Bad Fats–The biggest reason for me is because I can avoid all the ucky, over processed oils in the store bought brands. (Even the ‘Olive Oil’ style mayonnaise has soybean oil as a main ingredient–yuck!!)

Know All Your Ingredients–I also like knowing exactly what is in that mysterious, gelatinous whitish, yellow stuff. (If I sound a little squeamish, it’s ’cause I am. I used to avoid mayo like the plague until I learned to make it from scratch!) Making it from scratch allows you to adjust the contents and taste just to your liking.

Boost Nutrition–Finally, it gives you a lacto-fermented condiment to use with favorite meals like hamburgers! Suddenly your mayonnaise goes from a shady character with evil intentions toward your gallbladder, to an enzyme-rich, deeply nourishing companion which will aid digestion and boost the nutrition of any meal you serve it with.

      Oh, Claire! Yes, make him sauerkraut. It’s soooo good and good for you! And, really a simple thing to make.

      I have had this basil mayo of which you speak…someone brought it to church potluck this summer. Oh, my–it made hamburgers a near spiritual experience. I need to make me some….

    I am LOVING this series! I never realized it was so easy to make mayo! Pastured eggs in my area are really expensive, but when compare the cost of those eggs with the cost of buying yucky mayo, it really justifies buying them just for mayo!

    One question…When you leave it on the counter for 7 hours, do you cap it? Or just cover the top loosely?

    Thank you for all that you do!
