It's actually fairly easy to make, which could solve both the ingredients and cost issue! (see HERE) Personally, I'd leave out the vinegar and use extra lemon, but hey - 15 minutes!


You are talking chalk and cheese here

I'm all for experimenting in the kitchen, but I don't think you could legitimately call that mayo.

We use the so called Mayo in sauces and in cottage cheese (though I try to eat it as it comes out of the pot). If you want Mayo for a salad then macliam has the right idea. Though we tend to go for lemon, balsamic vinegar and oil for the dressing rather than Mayo

No chalk or cheese in any recipe I know ;)

Nothing better for a toasted bacon sandwich - in place of any spread and with black pepper, yum :mrgreen:

Also great as a basis for a Marie-Rose sauce with seafood - just add ketchup, worcestershire sauce and black pepper.

If it's from natural ingredients and you ignore the fat fascists (or use it "as part of a balanced diet" ;) ), then there's no problem with it - it's the manufactured products that are the problem.......

Chalk and cheese or bread and bacon. Shop Mayo and homemade mayo are totally different things and bear very little relationship to each other.

But I still cannot understand why anyone wants to ruin a good bit of bacon by adding bread to it. I love the treacle or beer bacon i can get locally but these days do not buy it. 'im indoors does not want gout again and bacon is one of the triggers.

I would say food inflation is running a lot higher than this , also there are many electric & gas price rises about to kick in.

We put stuff in the food bank box every week because we understand there are people far worse off than us. And the saddest thing is they are often in work. Not necessary full time with the zero hours or part time but can be topped up hours contracts work these days
