Homemade Mayo without eggs

Unread post by Old Fashioned » Tue Apr 16, 2019 9:57 am

I like watching these videos and have been learning about the self sustainability of people during WW2 when rationing was enforced and you either had to go without, or figure out a good substitute. These videos are about Britain and I'm sure they are glamourized a bit only because it's been well known Britain suffered much more than the rest of us back then.

Anyway, if you don't want to watch the whole video, you can skip to 16:00 for how she made mayo without egg using a potato instead.

I'll watch. My SonIL is allergic to egg whites. So much so, he has to get a diff type of flu treatment (mandatory for school workers).

Murph......I just had to try it and really it wasn't too bad at all. I was pleasantly surprised that it did taste like mayo. I just didn't get the right consistency of it being creamy & spreadable, but that was my own fault.

I had a leftover microwaved baked potato in the fridge and since it was too firm & dry I put it in a pan with water to simmer it a bit in the hopes it would soften up and become more moist. It didn't work, but may have if I'd left it a bit longer. So when I tried to mash it thru my poor old strainer, it was difficult to say the least. Then I realized I had to run to the bank before it closed, so I hurried and only did about 1/3 of the potato, added ACV instead of regular distilled vinegar, mustard powder, a bit of oil and salt & pepper and mixed it up. As I said it did taste good and is worth another effort to do it right.

Next time I'll use fresh boiled potato and it should work. |em23|

Farm....there is a whole series....well actually 2. It's really one series, but 2 different people have atleast some of the same videos on their playlist. Each one has little tidbits of info hiding in it, like the mayo

Last night I watched one, though I think it was a completely different channel, but still about the old ways or getting by in tough times...anyway, I had to laugh when they were using some kind of old tool like a belt sander to pluck a chicken. I wish I could remember which one it was so could post it.....but age does have it's limits |em2|
