This Mayo Will Change Your Sandwich Game Forever

Ask any chef worth their salt and they’ll tell you straight up: That jarred stuff you’re buying at the supermarket? That’s not mayonnaise.

At least, not in the classic sense, anyway. Those big-brand offerings are loaded with refined sugar, preservatives, and starches. Real mayonnaise? It’s got none of that stuff. Just ask Julia Child—who made hers with just four ingredients: oil, vinegar (or lemon juice), and egg yolks and dry mustard.

At Sir Kensington's, they understand the value of a traditional approach made with real ingredients. Their mayo is simply…mayo. Made with organic eggs, and sunflower oil, their condiment is true to the basic idea of mayonnaise—a rich, silky sauce with black pepper, and mustard seed for even more tangy flavor.

"Let's look back at a traditional French mayonnaise,” co-founder co-founder Scott Norton said. “It's not made with soybean oil or canola oil—it's made with sunflower oil. Instead of using the lowest quality eggs possible, let's use organic free-range eggs, and make sure the flavor and texture is what a traditional mayo should be."

The mayo is now a huge part of their business, but Norton and co-founder Mark Ramadan started the company with the idea of creating a better ketchup. Sir Kensington's now includes everything from spicy brown mustard to sriracha mayonnaise. And all of their condiments come in glass jars instead of the standard plastic, making their packaging BPA-free and environmentally friendly (not to mention très chic).

But let’s get back to that mayo. It’s better for your body, too.

"Because people had an understanding that most mayonnaise isn't something that is healthy to eat...I think people were drawn to this higher quality mayonnaise as a way to indulge in a way that is also good for you," he explained.

So the next time you crave chicken salad or a BLT sandwich, remember cooking’s grand dame. She knew the value of tradition, and Sir Kensington’s does too.

Salmon Gives a Delicious New Spin to Classic Nicoise Salad

    When will companies get the message that real foodists avoid vegetable oils with their high Omega 6 content?! And if they want to attract health savvy buyers, just stop using Canola oil altogether. Any product listing Canola -- or soy in any form for that matter - goes straight back on the shelf. Sir Kensington is a no pass for me.
