I’ve mentioned before that I grew up in a household that was extremely health and food conscious. That meant no processed foods and certainly nothing with sugar added. Forget ketchup. It simply wasn’t a part of my life.
Mayonnaise? Now that’s a different story!
I grew up in Cary, North Carolina, and the Southern mayonnaise of choice was Duke’s Mayonnaise. Since it is minimally processed, Duke’s Mayonnaise always tasted like freshly made mayonnaise, only without the preparation and cleanup of home-made mayonnaise. Created in 1917 by the Duke family in South Carolina, the recipe has remained the same ever since.
What’s in it?
Soybean oil, eggs, water, distilled and cider vinegar, salt, oleoresin paprika, and natural flavors
What does it taste like? It is just mayonnaise, right?
Wrong. It’s not your average mayonnaise. It has more egg yolks than other brands of mayonnaise and no added sugar. This gives it a unique tanginess, while remaining smooth and creamy.
Where can I buy it?
Good news, there IS a store in Northwest Arkansas that carries Duke’s Mayonnaise! Where? At the Pinnacle Station Local market in Rogers (corner of Promenade Blvd. and New Hope Road).
What if I don’t live in Northwest Arkansas?
No problem. If you live in the Southeast, no problem, simply head to your nearest grocery store! Otherwise, anyone can shop online and order directly from Duke’s Mayonnaise.
Check it out. Your sandwich will thank you.
