Fact: I don’t like mayonnaise. I know, I know! I’ll only eat it if it is generously masked by other flavors, like a Spinach Dip, so I don’t know it is actually mayo. Until… I started making my own Blender Mayonnaise.
There is something about eggs and oil sitting on a shelf unrefrigerated in the grocery store that really freaks me out. Most don’t seem to have much flavor either, which makes me beg the question: WHY??? Why are we using this stuff?
Much like my Blender Butter, I find that making homemade mayonnaise is much more satisfying and tasty, I get SO many compliments on the flavor and I can control the salt and oil. For aiolis and spreads, I use a high quality olive oil that lends to a darker hue (pictured), but for a recipe that calls for baking or blending it in a dip, I might use a vegetable oil. You can even get crazy and use specialty flavored oils like lemon, basil or blood orange! *Mind Blown* I also use a small amount of Maldon Sea Salt. It not only emphasizes the flavor, it will help to preserve your mayo. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week!
Don’t underestimate the importance of a good blender. Frozen drinks and smoothies will the correct consistency and fit through a straw and soups and salad dressings will be super smooth. I’m in love with my Blendtec and I know it will last me a lifetime! Watch my video to see just how easy it is to make your own Blender Mayonnaise!
