Garden and Mayonnaise with cooked eggs


We are in full Spring here, and enjoying the warm weather.....our peach tree is full of flowers, and I'm having spinach that I can harvest when I want.

I made an experiment this year. I read in the internet (I don't remember where) that if you put a coil of copper, you increase the production of vegetables in size and quantity. I gave it a try, and it seems that my spinaches are bigger.

 I used the same soil as last year, I didn't fertilize it before seedling, and I used the same seeds as last year since I still have seeds from that package. I tried to maintain minimum changes compared to last year to try this copper addition, and it seems that it is working. I never had spinaches these big! 

Now, let's go to the recipe. I had to make savory blinis, but some of my guests were allergic to raw eggs. However, I have to make a special mayonnaise for all of us to enjoy the blinis. I found a recipe with cooked eggs that I tried. I have to admit that still I prefer my mayonnaise with raw egg, but this is a good substitute.

Mayonnaise with cooked eggs

4 hard boiled eggs

4 teaspoons of olive oil

2 teaspoons of lemon juice



water as needed

Optional: mustard, garlic, herbs

In a container, place the hard boiled eggs sliced in quarters. Add the olive oil, lemon, and salt. With an immersion hand blender mix it well, add water as needed to make the consistency you desire. If you wish, then add garlic, mustard or herbs. Use it as real mayonnaise. ENJOY!


  1. I like to throw in cooked eggs in my mayonnaise too :-)) You are a great gardener and foodie.

  2. I am not allergic but I would much rather prefer recipes with cooked eggs. This is perfect for me.
