Homemade Avocado Oil Mayonnaise

Mayonnaise is surprisingly easy to make, and only requires eggs and oil. I add a little sea salt and lemon juice at the end.

How To Make Homemade Avocado Oil Mayonnaise

Use two raw eggs

2 cups of oil- I like this avocado oil

Put the eggs in the food processor, turn on, and take a full minute to pour in each cup of oil.
By the time two minutes are up (or one minute for one egg/cup of oil) it should be thick!

You have to pour it slowly- dumping it all in at once and then letting it run for a minute doesn’t work.
Then I add a small pinch of sea salt and let it mix in.
It does thicken a little more in the fridge.

According to Nourishing Traditions you can add a couple tablespoons of whey and then let it sit out on the counter for a couple days to lactoferment before putting in the fridge. With the lactofermentation, the mayonnaise will keep longer.  I’ve done this before and didn’t notice a taste difference- this time I didn’t have any whey so I just did plain.

Without the whey it lasts in the fridge one week.

Easy, isn’t it? If you’ve ever taken the time to compare ingredients on different store bought mayonnaises I believe you’ll agree that it’s easier to just make your own.  And frugal! Costing essentially as much as you pay for oil.
