Spicy Juniper Mayonnaise

Yield 3 1/4 cups


  • 2 1/2 tablespoons fresh or dried juniper berries
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 (2-ounce) bottle green hot sauce*
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2/3 cup egg substitute
  • 2 cups olive oil

How to Make It

  1. Cook juniper berries in a small skillet on high heat for 2 minutes. Crush berries with the back of a spoon. Add water and lemon juice; bring to a boil. Cook 5 minutes or until mixture is reduced by half. Strain mixture, discarding solids.

  2. In a food processor or blender, process lemon-juniper mixture, hot sauce, and next 3 ingredients until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. With processor or blender running, add oil in a slow steady stream, blending until thickened.

  3. *In testing, we used green Tabasco sauce.
