“I've been searching for a good mayonnaise recipe for a while. I found one I liked that tastes as close to Hellmann's as could be. However, from my research and reading, there are several things about regular and even health-food store mayonnaise that is bad for you. (1) The Oil. Soybean oil isn't healthy. Only fresh soybeans or fermented soybean products are healthy. Anything else from Soy is way too controversial in the circles of "Nutritional Experts". Canola Oil, also another industrial scam. Not healthy at all. Read Johnny Bowden's book "The 150 Healthiest Foods On Earth" and you'll see what he and other experts have to say about Canola Oil. Simply put, it's just not good for you and it comes from a genetically altered plant. Lastly, when you see "and spices" this continues to be a mystery. But, I have read in several places, that one of the "Spices" is monosodium glutamate. Yes, MSG is a big component of "and spices". "They" simply found another way to get MSG into you and not have to let you know about it on the label. To really make this recipe healthier, use Organic Omega-3 Eggs from Hens that were free roaming-Free Range, No Antiobiotics / No Hormones. These are the healthiest hens and produce much healthier eggs. Also, the original version of my recipe contained raw Agave nectar, which I've replaced with Raw Honey. Studies now show that Agave nectar is simply an "agave" version of high fructose corn syrup and contains higher amounts of fructose than HFCS does. Fructose seems to be the bad common denominator. when it's in its natural form (within fruit) it's okay, but outside of fruit, fructose isn't good for you. Fruit yes, fructose no. So much for Agave Nectar being a "health food". This recipe uses MUCH healthier ingredients and tastes phenomenal. You be the judge. I love Mayo and I love this recipe. I hope you do too. Dr. T”

Directions

  1. Put the egg yolks in the blender (I use a Vitamix) and start it on the slowest speed.
  2. Combine vinegar, water, Celtic sea salt, Raw Honey, and lemon juice in a small bowl or glass measuring cup & Stir until everything is dissolved.
  3. Add this solutions slowly to the (blending) egg yolks then add the dry mustard.
  4. Slowly stream 1 cup of oil into the blending mixture. You can use a plastic squirt bottle so you have more control. Don�t rush this process!
  5. This bottle will allow you to dribble the oil into the egg yolk with one hand while very slowly, turning up the speed of the blender (start turning up the speed when about ½ the oil is in there).
  6. When you have used about ½ to ¾ of the oil, your mayonnaise should start to change color and start to thicken. Continue to turn the speed up until it thickens.
  7. Your �Healthy Hellmanns� mayonnaise should be thick and off-white in color.
  8. Put the mayonnaise into an old mayonnaise jar and seal it with a lid.
  9. Leave this out on your kitchen counter for 8 to 10 hours so that the vinegar and lemon juice can kill any potential bacteria in the egg yolk. However, if you use healthy eggs from healthy chickens (that�s why I use free range organic no-hormone/no-antibiotic Omega-3 eggs -- healthy hens produce healthy eggs).
  10. Keep up to 2 weeks in your refrigerator.
  11. Tastes Really great and has some healthy Omega-3 fats in it. Unlike typical mayo.
