Here is a smart tasty mayonnaise recipe that is easy to make. You can make it any time you need to and with your regular blender that you use for drinks and smoothies. It takes in all about 15 minutes and my wife constantly begs me to make it, she thinks it tastes that good.
Before you begin you want to make sure you have a blender that is multi speed. You may wonder why this is so or why not make a large batch at once, the answer is simple, heat. I once tried to make a large batch and wound up with oily scrambled eggs instead of a spreadable condiment. If you have speeds that are too fast or the blender has to work too hard the oil will heat us and not create the emulsion that you need. It will literally cook your eggs instead of blending it with the ingredients that you use. Read more...(742 words, 1 image, estimated 2:58 mins reading time)

A note about the tapioca starch: Many times you just will not find this readily available on your grocery store shelves. This is not a problem if you have one of those nice new personal coffee grinders. If you don’t have one they are really cheap to get. Anyway, to make tapioca starch you would first buy some minute tapioca, the stuff you get to make tapioca pudding. Take and add about a quarter cup and grind it in the coffee grinder on the fine setting about 3 times. That would be about 60 seconds. You will now have a fine powder that you can use in place of regular starch. Some might wonder why you would do this, well there are some that have a problem with corn or gm corn and can’t use regular corn starch. This is a perfect alternative for those that have this problem with regular starch. Read more...(391 words, 1 image, estimated 1:34 mins reading time)
