Thermobexta’s Lime Avocado Mayonnaise

Avo Mayo

I bought a bottle of avocado oil a long time ago after hearing how good it is in mayonnaise.  It was soon lost and forgotten in my small, overfull pantry, until recently.  I made this mayonnaise the other night when I decided to make sushi for my girls’ lunch boxes and realised I had limited filling ingredients – a flavoursome mayo was essential.  This turned out even better than expected!  The oil I used was lime infused, which added another fantastic element and if you can find the same one, I highly recommend it.  If not, a plain avo oil will be fine, but I would suggest increasing the apple cider vinegar a little if so.  A friend has since made my recipe in this way and was hooked upon first taste 🙂 Continue reading Thermobexta’s Lime Avocado Mayonnaise

Thermobexta’s Strawberry Vanilla Jam

I came up with this after trying a few recipes for strawberry jam that were just too sweet for us.  My recipe uses a small amount of sugar, as far as jam recipes go and has been very popular amongst my facebook group members.

Makes 3-4 jars, depending on the size of them. Continue reading Thermobexta’s Strawberry Vanilla Jam
