HomeMade mayo :) (duck) and Rocking Dairy Free Ranch Dressing Two recipes in this POST

Here is My Recipe for Homemade Mayo
* I use Duck eggs or Guinea  Eggs or Goose Eggs :)




JoAnna's Homemade Mayo
2 Duck Large Pasteurized Egg yolk  of Choice *Directions for pasteurization  is on my blog as well!  I use Mascovey Duck eggs they are the size of 3 chicken eggs.
RECIPE FOR THAT HERE how-to-pasturize-eggs

(pasteurize the egg and then use the egg yolk for the mayo and the white for another recipe..)
1 1/2 tsp of fresh Lemon Juice
1/4 Tsp of Dijon Mustard
1 tsp Raw, Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 tsp salt and more to taste
3/4 cup of canola Oil (or grape seed and even olive oil works)

Combine Egg yolk, the lemon juice , mustard and vinegar and 1/2 tsp of salt in a medium bowl.  Whisk until blended until a golden yellow about 30 seconds ( I used my food processor).

Using 1/4th tsp measure and whisking constantly, add 1/4 cup of oil into the yolk mixture a few drops at at time, all this will take about 4 min. Gradually add remaining 1/2 cup of oil in a slow thin stream, whisking or pulsing if using your Cuisinart food processor with the bottom blade attachment. This should take about 8 min, the mixture should be nice and thick! Cover and Chill. Keep Refrigerated!
It will Keep 2 weeks in the Fridge.
if you stir a tablespoon of whey into your homemade mayonnaise, and leave it out of the fridge for about 7 hours, then refrigerate it, it will last for a couple of months.

How to Pasturize Eggs.....

I love making my own mayo Using Ducks Eggs (or Guinea hen or goose) , And Also making Aoili and so forth but man Do I think its a good idea to pasteurize the eggs before using raw in a recipe YES!!! SO here is how you do it!!! :D

To pasteurize large eggs,
Its wise to place the eggs on the counter for 15 min or longer to bring them to room temperature to ensure they pasteurize evenly...
place them in a saucepan filled with water and fitted with a digital thermometer. Turn on the heat and bring the water up to 140F.
Keep the water temperature at 140F for 3 minutes (and no more than 142F), reducing the heat on the burner if necessary. Remove eggs from hot water and rinse thoroughly with cold water.
Store in the refrigerator until needed or use right away.
Jumbo sized eggs need to 5 minutes in 140F water.
**Disclaimer: I feel compelled to mention that I cannot absolutely guarantee that this method is going to completely eliminate the 1 in 20,000 chance that an egg you have might have salmonella, although as long as your egg reaches the appropriate temperature, it should be effective.
This is a method that I, and many friends who are chefs/culinary professionals,  use to pasteurize our eggs when we need them. The vast majority of bacteria associated with an egg is found on the eggshell. The fresher your eggs are, the better they are. You can read more about egg safety here.
Naturally, I would recommend that anyone pregnant, etc. avoid raw eggs just to be on the safe side.

Gluten Free Dairy Free Free of MOST Allergen's and more ! Clam Chowder (New England) with a Vegan Version of Creamy Corn Veggie Chowder

Consuming this soup is like consuming heaven ...hahah its really really good and so comforting!!! Definitely  do not feel like Im missing out on a thing this is definitely  a family favorite! And its loaded with Clams!!!
Taste just like the REAL REAL DAIRY AND BUTTER LOADED Floured Clam chowder we all grew up with !! :D
****



Gluten Free, Dairy Free Allergen Free Clam Chowder (New England Style)
(this makes about 2 quarts)
1 Can of SeaWatch Brand Chopped Sea Clams ( I used there huge can from Costco, 51 oz.) (Reserve the Clam Juice!)
1 8oz. Bottle of Clam Juice I used (Snow's all natural)
2 Bacon Slices, minced
1 medium Onion
2 Stalks of Celery cut into uniformed pieces

2 Bay Leaves
1/2 tsp of Fresh Thyme Leaves
1 pound of potatoes, peeled and minced
2 Cups of Coconut Milk (Like Silk or So Delicious)
1 Can of Coconut Milk (I like to use this along with the milk from the carton for the thicker cream and more of a nuttier coconut taste )
( to Note if allergic to Coconut use your milk of choice it may need to be thickened up a wee bit more at the end ).

6 tablespoons of Dry Sherry (or adjust to your taste, if you don't want to use alcohol leave it out)
Salt & Pepper to Taste
Franks Red Hot Sauce or Tabasco to Taste
Gluten Free Worcestershire Sauce ( I use wizards brand Organic GF/CF Vegan Worcestershire)

To Prepare:
Drain the Clam Juice into a measuring cup or bowl and the bottle of Clam Juice It should equal out to 4 cups if i recall correctly lol ....

Cook the mixed Bacon in your soup pot, on medium heat until lightly crisped, about 8 min.
Add the Onion and Celery and cook stirring occasionally until the onions are translucent , about 5 to 7 min. Add the gluten free Flour Mix and cook over low heat, stirring with a wooden soup for 3to4 min.

Whisk in the Clam Juice, bring to a simmer and cook for 5 min, dont forget to stir occasionally. The Liquid should start to thicken up , add the bay leaf and the fresh thyme.

Add the potatoes and simmer until tender around 15 min or so.

Meanwhile place the clams and the coconut milks, in a saucepan on low heat for about 5-8 min.

When the potatoes are tender add the clams and coconut mixture, simmer on med low or med for 1-2 min, DO NOT BOIL!
*If the Mixture is not think enough for you, then just add a Tab of cornstarch or arrowroot with 5 tab of COLD water and stir into the chowder, should thicken up allot more for you! :D

Stir in the Sherry if using, Season to taste with salt and pepper, and if using Tabasco or franks red hot sauce and the Worcestershire Sauce . Serve and Enjoy.
*Another tip let your guests use the hot sauce and Worcestershire at the table so they can use what they like in the chowder!

LET'S TALK ABOUT DAIRY FREE & NUT FREE MILK OPTIONS : :)

For those like me who cannot have dairy or nuts its important to explore your diffrent dairy free and milk options you will be surprised to find what a fantastci selection!!  These are some brand's that I use!! :)


Golden Flax Seed Milk From Flax USA! This milk is great and taste delicious they have original 7mg sugar cane and vanilla 11mg sugar cane  the only draw back it does contain some evaporated cane sugar :( for those who cannot or like me who can only tolerate a very small amount of sugar this is something that I do not consume allot in my baking and cooking due to the sugar. but it is a good and healthy option~ check the website out it gives you all the nutritional facts ! :)

I love making my own Coconut Milk

http://www.flaxusa.com/products.php?page=flaxmilk

This one is my first and favorite that I use all the time and its sugar free as well!!! I love Turtle Mountains So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk!!! Remember coconut is not a nut just saying :)  Its actually a tropical fruit :)
http://www.turtlemountain.com/products/product.php?p=so_delicious_beverage_hg_unsweetened


Okay so I use this on rare occasions when i cannot get my other stand-byes I do not use soy in abundance, but my body can tolerate it .  Silk Soy Milk I do not care that this brand states that it may contain traces of nuts in it so I am always Leary to use it :(
http://silksoymilk.com/products/silk-organic/unsweetened

This is a great favorite of mine HEMP MILK!!! Living Harvest is the Brand Hemp Milk ! and they make and unsweetened version as well!! thus sugar free yippee!

2 cups Sweet Brown Rice Flour
2 1/3 Cups of Tapioca Starch (  I use Bobs Red Mill , I buy the #25Lb Bag)
Mix Thoroughly, I usually triple this recipe and store it in my nice big glass containers , I always have this on hand , to make anything from, breads,pizzas, biscuits,cookies and cakes! its that versatile!

*if you don't want to use arrowroot use cornstarch or potato. I don't use any corn or potato starches but that is my personal preference.


This Mix is dedicated to those who cannot have rice , so I developed this mix for them so They wont have to go without as well :D Enjoy  :)
