How to Make Homemade Mayonnaise

I have seen many posts on homemade mayonnaise and wanted to try it. All I can say now is why didn't I try this sooner? This is the best tasting mayo I have EVER had, and it makes everything taste better. It is thinner than conventional mayonnaise but that has not been a problem in any of my recipes yet.

The original recipe comes from Nourishing Traditions Cookbook by Sally Fallon which I highly recommend. It is not an SCD cookbook but has many basics in it that I am enjoying such as chicken stock and this mayonnaise. I don't like to post recipes from cookbooks but I did find it here online if you can't wait for your book to arrive! Also if you have been on a casein free diet and miss creamy salad dressings this is your ticket! I am going to try Ranch with this mayo, I will keep you posted....


  1. I can't believe you haven't made mayo!! I do so much with it as a substitute for so many other things. Try this for some salad dressing - in your mayo add some of that minced garlic that comes in a jar, some dried chives, a bit of salt and pepper, and a small dash of cayenne. We eat it all the time. And it's good for dipping veggies. And potato chips, for those of us that can have them. And deep fried rutabaga fries.

    And super good, the mayo, add curry powder and drizzle over broccoli and/or chicken, top with cheddar cheese. mmmmm


  2. Oh my Wendy, that sound so good, I can't wait to try it. Thanks!!

  3. OK, maybe I am missing something here, but where is the recipe? I only see two snapshots.

  4. Hi Mary,
    To find the recipe click on the links, I did not feel comfortable posting it as it comes from a cookbook that is copyrighted.
