Spicy Cayenne Mayonnaise

If you have never made your own mayo it’s time you tried. I do not eat mayonnaise on a regular basis but when I want to I always make it homemade and fresh. If you purchase store bought mayonnaise you will likely end up with a highly processed products that contains egg protein derived from chickens that receive regular doses of antibiotics and fed GMO grain. The most frequently used oil is canola oil because of its low cost and mild taste. Unfortunately, canola oil is derived from rapeseed, which is a GMO crop and was rebranded some years ago. In this recipe I do not specify which oils to used and I encourage you to experiment with blends you enjoy. I recommend starting with mild oils like cold-pressed sunflower, safflower, organic canola (if you can find it), and olive oil. The recipe below provides you with the basics to make a homemade mayonnaise. If you don’t like spice, simple leave out the cayenne and substitute with lemon juice. My spicy cayenne mayonnaise can be paired with many dishes but is unbelievable delicious with baked sweet potato wedges, not to mention a good condiment on the burger.
