Miracle Whip is the only mayo allowed in our home. I hate Hellmann’s. I just can’t stand the taste.
Miracle Whip on bologna, Duke’s on everything else.
Michele O will take care of this
Hienz Katchup is definitely allowed in my house. I love that katchup.
They might be ever so slightly different: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hellmann%27s_and_Best_Foods
Your father was heroic! Most food magazines recommend making the stuff by hand. And they claim it only takes about 7 minutes - yeah, right, if you’re a big oaf like Gordon Ramsey it takes 7 minutes. It takes a bloody half hour and then your arm is wrecked for life.
Ewwww. As I stated, I made mayo once, from scratch. It tasted just like Hellmann’s.
I decided buying it was much easier than making it (after several failed attempts).
I couldn’t imagine what potato salad , macaroni salad, tuna salad or coleslaw would taste like using miracle whip. The thought makes me gag.
So do we know who BIG MAYO lobbies with?
lol. I think people like what they grew up with. We always had Miracle Whip. lol. No biggie. I am glad that not everyone likes it or it would be difficult to find.
Homemade mayo tastes just like Hellmann’s. That’s why I decided to buy it instead of making it.
It sounds easy to make, but it really isn’t. I found that out after a few failed attempts, lol.
Homemade mayo is a b&((ch to make! That’s why I did it only once, successfully. Tasted just like Hellmann’s, so I decided to buy it instead of making my own.
Blame Quentin Tarantino, not me.
So true! I was raised by my Aunt, who was 2 generations ahead of me. She lived through the Depression as a little girl and lived it her entire life.
The ONLY brand name she purchased was Hellmann’s. And it would be purchased by the gallon.
I really liked the Cain’s mayo with omega3s. Can’t find it anymore. It had a nice tang to it.
Homemade Mayo is a cinch if you use a Cuisinart. I do it all the time.
“I think people like what they grew up with.”
Not always. We had Miracle Whip when I was growing up, then one day I found out what real mayonnaise tastes like, and I will never eat that Miracle Whip crap again! I honestly don’t know how anyone can eat it.
Blue Plate is a really good brand of mayonnaise, too.
I think the figures for the size of the mayonnaise business may be as high as they are because mayo is expensive!
Someone mentioned the Kraft with olive oil - I saw them advertising a new one with olive oil and cracked pepper - I really want to try that.
Do you make it in 30 ounce batches instead of 32 ounce, like Hellmans and Kraft started doing?
You would have loved our place. Homemade 1000 island with great chunks of egg in it. Unbelievable.
I make a mean Thousand Island dressing. Brown ground beef, rehydrated dehydrated (yeah, I know) onions, melted slice of American cheese, lettuce, and a big blob of homemade Thousand Island. Fantastic big mac tasting salad.
Try mayo with potato chips!
On a similar note, I had a school friend who’d eat mustard by the cup full.
