    Raw Almond Mayo
    1/2 cup almonds, soaked overnight
    3/4 cup water

    2 large dates, pitted
    1 pinch cayenne
    1 1/2 cups olive oil

    1. Peel the skins from the soaked almonds by pouring some boiled water over them an letting them sit for about 30 seconds. Drain and cool under cold water, skins should slip off easily.

    2. Place peeled almonds, water (in increments), garlic, salt or tamari, lemon juice, dates and cayenne into VitaMix or Blender, Food Processor (Culinary goodie of your choice) and blend until creamy.

    3. When mixture is velvety smooth, turn blender to low and drizzle in the olive oil. Continue blending until mixture becomes thick.

    4. Mayo will last in a glass jar for 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
