Could coconut oil be used to make mayonnaise? I used olive oil the first time I made it and it was good but had a strong olive oil taste, not always what I want. Anyone ever try it?

I have done it, the key is to let the coconut oil melt and become liquid which you can do in the microwave by heating it up for a bit. However, if you heat up the coconut oil, remember that you must not let it get too hot or else it will cook the... (more)

Can people recommend a type and brand of oil that they like for their mayo? I have tried avocado oil and it gives the oil a green tint, which might be ideal for upcoming St. Patrick's day, but it's not appetizing for tuna fish. My goto now... (more)

So I'm ready to make some home made Mayo. I finally found a common store brand (I think it was Kraft) that used mostly olive oil, but still has bad stuff, including PUFA. But that's not what this post is about. In the process, I'm going to... (more)

Avocado or macadamia oil are very unlikely to have gone bad. Even if they had, rancidity (which you could definitely taste/smell) wouldn't necessarily stop emulsification. Mayonnaise making is VERY temperamental though. The humidity of the room... (more)

Phytic acid won't be in oil. Chemically, phytates are water-soluble polar compounds and simply won't be dissolved in isolated fats. Not a concern.

Drizzling the oil in is the key. I watched my grandma make it about a billion times growing up. She just used a handheld mixture-she always told me that the only way to make it right is to DRIZZLE the oil in. If you pour it, you'll F it up.

Hi, has anyone tried Soy-free Veganaise as a dressing/mayo alternative? I believe this should be 100% acceptable on the Paleo diet but I haven't seen any discussion in regard to it. Thank you!

How long will homemade mayo last in the refrigerator? Organic mayo from the supermarket seems to last a while. Is there some way to tweak the recipe to last a week if it doesn't? Or can I freeze it?
