    Homemade Mayo

    What do you guys think about using homemade mayo for things like tuna? I am just figuring out the basics of how to make it, which is pretty easy, but I feel like I could make healthier mayo than they sell in the stores. Also, if anyone has a good recipe for healthy, homemade mayo let me know.

    Its not a bad idea I think... the store mayo made by helmanns and kraft are pretty chemical free though.

    Hellmans is the closest you can get to an actual mayonaise which in turn is a secondary sauce from a hollandaise.
    ummm lets see.
    beat 2 egg yolks, yolks only until they get creamy and then add some white vinegar like a tbs or so, add some olive oil slowly.
    add some cayenne pepper to spice it up season with S&P

    I do it all the time and posted something in here on it a couple years back. Its so easy to make, and its so much better too. What's more you can use healthy oils for your mayo. I like seseme oil, but you can also use flax. Havent tried that but it would be good.

    To be on the safe side I dont keep mayo around more than about 4 days, even refridgerated. Unlike helmans it doesnt have preservatives in it when you make it fresh.
