Betty’s Herb Mayonnaise Recipe + Herb Garden Update

In this video, Betty shows an update of the herb garden. You will see that most of the herbs, tomato plants, and pepper plants are doing well. I picked five fresh herbs to make a lovely Herb Mayonnaise, which is below: Ingredients (Note: You may use dried herbs in place of the fresh herbs—just use 1/3 as much): 1 cup mayonnaise 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives ½ tablespoon finely chopped fresh basil ½ tablespoon finely chopped fresh dill ½ tablespoon finely chopped fresh oregano Stir together all ingredients in a small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to serve. You may use herb mayonnaise as a sandwich spread, or use it in the place of regular mayonnaise in potato salad, etc. It perks up the taste quite a lot! I will be uploading a recipe using this Herb Mayonnaise tomorrow. Enjoy, and have a happy day!!! –Betty 

    this looks great and delicious Betty!

    @missmickery You could use only one herb and your herb mayonnaise would be delicious. I think Rosemary Herb Mayonnaise would be great and have a lot of applications. Tarragon alone is also good. If you want two herbs, a combination of parsley and chives is great. Or oregano and basil will give you a kind of Italian style mayo.

    Hey Betty, I’m wondering if you could give me the smallest no. of herbs that can be used in this recipe and what these herbs are, and at the same time the mayo will still taste good. Cos I dun want to spend so much money on the herbs, as they are quite expensive in my country.

    Nice shears! Could tell me the brand?
    Are the holes in the blade actually functional?

    Noticed you were careful not to add 1/2TBS fingernail clippings 😀

    That sounds perfect for dinner!

    @SinnFein4ever Actually, the best recipe is the 50-year-old brownie recipe–and guaranteed not to fail!
    –Betty 🙂

  8. SinnFein4ever says:


    I could use somthing very rich.
    Your chocolate fudge recipees looked good.
    Which one is your favorite, the 50-year-old one, or your sister’s?

  9. bettyskitchen says:

    @SinnFein4ever How about brownies, or brownie pudding. Also, I have a wonderful dessert called chocolate cobbler!
    –Betty 🙂

    You’re welcome.
    Thanks so much for sharing all your recippes and cooking tips!
    Now I think I’ll make somthing chocolatey next tonight, because it’s that time of the month, and these cramps are killing me.

    @SinnFein4ever Thanks for the great feedback! I really appreciate it!
    –Betty 🙂

    I just finished making mine.
    I went to the farmers’ market this morning, and bought the oregano, onion chives, and basil.
    Dillweed and parsley aren’t in season, so I went to Whole Foods to buy some.
    They had fresh dillweed, but not fresh parsley, so I used some dried parsley that I had at home.
    I combined it with your Aoli recipe, instead of using regular mayo.
    I just had some on a sandwich that I made.
    It was AMAZING!
    : D

    @umkoki Hi! It’s so nice to hear from you! I have thought of you often. I hope all is well!
    Betty 🙂

  14. umkoki says:

    you are the best Betty , thanks alot for your recipes

  15. SinnFein4ever says:


    Ok, I’ll give it a try.
    I looked it up one your homepage, but I couldn’t find a recipee for mayo.

  16. bettyskitchen says:

    @SinnFein4ever Yes, you can make it just like the Aioli Sauce, but leave out the garlic.
    –Betty 🙂

  17. SinnFein4ever says:


    I don’t have a recipee for it in any of my cookbooks, so I thought I’d ask some people who do know one.
    You’ve made it from scratch before?

  18. bettyskitchen says:

    @SinnFein4ever I use egg yolks and olive oil in my mayonnaise–but it may be a different type from what you are making.
    –Betty 🙂

  19. SinnFein4ever says:

    What do you think that I should use as ingreadients for the base mayo (before I add the herbs) besides egg-whites, viniger, and salt?
    I know that some people use lemon juice as an ingrediant in mayo.
    By the way, I hope that you two are having a great time on your trip.

  20. bettyskitchen says:

    @SinnFein4ever I made Garlic Aioli (which is like garlic flavored mayonnaise) in bettyskitchen. I used a blender for the whole process, and it took only a few minutes. If you use a bowl and a whisk, it will take a little longer, but it really comes together quickly.
    –Betty 🙂

  21. SinnFein4ever says:

    How long do you think that it will take me to make the mayo from scratch?
    I love making everything from scratch.
    Even if it means I’m in the kitchen for two or three hours, I don’t mind.
    I’m still new at it, though; so I’m not nearly as good as my father.
    I tried to make chocolate pudding last month, and it turned out as chocolate mousse! It tasted more like chocolate truffles than Jell-O-style pudding.
    Waaaay more rich than I’d planned.
    But everyone liked it.

    @SinnFein4ever Hi! Your plans for tomorrow’s farmer’s market sound interesting! Yes, I have done a couple of uploads on visiting the loacl farmer’s market. It’s about time for me to go again, as there will be corn, and all of the great summer vegetables!
    –Betty 🙂

  23. SinnFein4ever says:

    Thanks for the reply! 🙂
    I’m going to the farmers’ market tomorrow morning to pick up the herbs I need.
    I’m also going to pick up some green eggs and some goat’s milk to make the mayo with.
    I’ve never made mayonaise before, so wish me luck.
    I’ll let you know how it turns out.
    Although judging from the way that some of your recipees which I’ve made before, turned out, I’m sure that it will be great.
    Do you ever go to farmers’ markets?

    @slmaia Hi Delia! It’s so nice to hear from you! I think of you often! I’m glad you liked the herb garden and the herb mayo!
    –Betty 🙂

    @galanie Sage always grows well for me. Cilantro seems to be the on that occasionally goes to seed and doesn’t produce like it should! Good luck with the rest of the growing season!
    –Betty 🙂
