The prefered oils are cold pressed, not chemically processed and "washed" chemically.

Overall, getting the omega 3 content higher is a real challenge. The only way I can see the omega 3 to omega 6 ratio improving is to use only grass fed meats, especially beef as the marbling cannot be trimmed.

My hens are laying and the egg yolks are a dark yellowy-orange. It is the middle of winter and they can still find enough "green" food scavenging to make a lovely carotene filled yolk. No snow cover this year so the girls are finding what they need to add to their grain to make lovely eggs. This also tells me the omega 3 is higher than if the egg is a pale yellow.

WereBear - Re; homemade mayonnaise - I avoided using the stick blender method for mayonnaise for a long time, preferring a whisk even though it took longer. I was wrong. The stick blender is quicker, and makes a thicker mayo. I personally rather like the flavor of olive oil in my mayo, but I do thin it down a bit with avocado oil. When I have it I add 1/4 cup of walnut oil as well, which adds a nice background note. So, 3/4 cup olive, 1/4 c avocado, 1/4 c walnut. If using horseradish I would leave out the walnut oil; it's flavor is light, and would be overwhelmed by the horseradish. There are a few things that I prefer bottled mayo for - I need to retrain my tastes :-) - and for that I use Primal Mayo (hard to find, and expensive), or Sir Kensington's (also expensive, but I can find at the local Safeway) - both made w/avocado oil. Sir Kensington has several types, so label reading, as always, is recommended. (Note for the Keto purists: Primal has, I believe, no sugar at all; Sir Kensington's has a minimal amount. I choose SK anyway because it easier to find, slightly less expensive, and the sugar is truly minimal)

The ONLY way I can make it is stick blender 😀 All my cooking fell by the wayside with my latest health crisis, but those are great tips for when I get back into it.

Since I have just finished my three pack of Primal mayo which I 💗
