Has anyone attempted to make IP-acceptable mayo?

Since the ingredients are:

1 large egg
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard (make sure no sugar, etc.)
1 1/3 cups vegetable or canola oil (could substitute olive oil)
4 teaspoons white wine vinegar or freshly squeezed lemon juice

Any thoughts to share?

I hope it's IP acceptable! I've been wondering the same thing myself - perhaps it has to do with the caloric count once all items are combined?

Not sure if I'm up-to-date on the latest IP P1 protocol, but when I started IP 1 yr ago, wine vinegar was not allowed, not even white wine. The Dijon jars I looked at had carbs. There may be some that don't, though. Maybe mustard powder would do the job.

As a mayo-holic, I don't think I would be able to use the small amount that would keep within the oil guideline of 2 tsps/day.

Walden Farms makes mayo. It's not half bad.

I tried and tried and TRIED to like the Walden Farms products, but I just can't. I felt like I was eating horrible tasting chemicals. I have an aunt who loves it, so all the opened bottles I have, I've given to her. Works out great for us both LOL!

I just looked at a jar of dijon, and it did have carbs.

I'm with you; I just don't get how they can make all those products with 0/0/0 :dizzy:

I found another recipe from The Clothes Make the Girl and the ingredients look promising...

1 egg
2 tablespoons lemon juice @ room temp
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup plus 1 cup light-tasting olive oil (Not extra virgin.)

I'm going to try it and post my results. :crossed:

Look forward to hearing how you like it, bluegingham. Aside from IP-friendly, it's doesn't have all the additives of store-bought. My favorite mustard powder is Coleman's. Do you know why extra virgin is avoided for this recipe?

Do not use expensive, fancy extra-virgin olive oil; the olive flavor is overpowering. I use the grocery store brand “light tasting” olive oil. It barely tastes like olives which is not so good for green salads, but is awesome for mayo. (You might try Filippo Berio or Bertoli.)

I know, I would have made a batch already, but all I have is the extra-virgin oo.

Thanks, bluegingham. Same here re the oil. IP allows grapeseed oil, too, which is less overpowering than olive oil (good for cooking too, due to higher smoke point than oo). I'll try that first and post.

I make Rainbow's mayo recipe and love it. I will add finely chopped dill pickle and make my own tartar sauce with a splash of hot sauce over my blackened tilapia. So good!

Great to hear there's a good IP one out there! Is it posted in one of the recipe pages?
