Just wanted to pass on a recipe that we have been enjoying for the last month or so for homemade mayonnaise. I have tried several recipes in the past, but nothing has compared to this recipe!
– Based on olive oil & apple cider vinegar – the best choice for oils! Most mayo out there is made of canola or safflower oils (read here for more info on comparing oils nutritionally). The olive oil content is low so the flavor is definitely not overpowering, as I have experienced before in previous recipes. ACV is very nutritious for you as well (read more here)!
- It is simple to make, taking around 5 minutes, and does not require any special equipment.
- Preservative free – most importantly you are controlling all the ingredients that go into it, and thus making the most nutritional, preservative free choice for your family.
(The one exception I make is the evaporated milk in this recipe, but it does provide the necessary thickness and creaminess to this recipe.)
- Frugal alternative!
– I recommend making 1 1/2 times the recipe as it uses a full standard 12 oz can of evaporated milk, and does not allow any to go to waste.
I made another batch this evening and combined some of it to make my own Caesar dressing for dinner! Yum!
Thanks to Michele at Frugal Granola for passing the recipe on to me!
That’s my kitchen tip for today!
