Remember when I said I needed to make my own mayo so I could have the good stuff? I followed the instructions and did it in the fantastic new KitchenAid my daughter sent as an anniversary gift (love it. love her. so grateful.) with the whisk thingy. It came out really well. The only caveat is that I kept adding my oil blend (2/3 olive, 1/3 coconut) until I thought it was thick enough. When it was refrigerated it became a little too thick so next time I know to stop a bit short of Helmans consistency. I'd like a flavor that is a little less overwhelmingly olive-y too but I don't want it to taste of coconut either. The oil blend needs some work. Overall though I am delighted with how it came out, how little work was really involved to get a full quart (I tripled the recipe) and how affordable it was compared with ordering from Tropical Traditions. Love them but I live in AK and have kids who would put mayo on their jelly if I let them. That might be an exaggeration but not much.
