Mayo in a food processor
1 cup oil (of any choice!) I often use flax seed oil for the extra Omega 3 oils
1 egg yolk/egg white replacement/or flax seed replacement if allergic to egg! ** (see below)
1 tbsp 'acid' of choice (this could be vinegar or lemon juice)
1 tsp mustard powder
1/2 tsp salt
Directions for a food processor:
In food processor, mix egg white replacement (or egg yolk/flax seed replacement) with 'acid', salt and mustard powder for 1 minute. Through opening at top, slowly drizzle oil in while machine is on. Drizzle it very slowly!! This will begin to start the 'emulsion' process! You will see it begin to change. Ensure you add all the oil very slowly! It takes about 10 minutes to add all the oil if you do it right.
Directions for a blender, immersion blender or whisk:
Combine the egg yolk/egg white replacement (or flaxseed substitute) and the acid in a bowl and begin to whisk or beat. Very, very, very slowly (drop by drop!) add the oil until you begin to see an emulsion form. You can then begin to add it in a little quicker now (this is usually after about 1/3 of the oil is added). Once all the oil is added, add in the mustard powder and salt! This method takes about 30 minutes.
**To make the ground flax seed egg substitute, you will need to do this FIRST.
1 tablespoon flaxseed meal or ground flaxseed
3 tablespoons hot water
Mix the ground flaxseed with hot water in a blender or with a wisk or fork for 1 - 2 minutes or until an egg-like consistency has been reached. NOTE: I've not actually done it this way but have read it is possible!! As such I can not attest to how well it will turn out. I will test it out soon as let you all know!!
My 'jarred' mayo!!
Home made mayonnaise is safe stored in the refrigerator for a few weeks to a couple of months. It doesn't last that long in my house! Since I tend to use an egg-white replacement that I found at my local grocery store (that does NOT contain any alliums and is pasteurized), I tend to make 3 cups at a time, put it in canning jars and vacuum seal two of them. It still only lasts about six weeks!
