Hellmann’s: Soon to be 100% cage-free!
|July 25, 2012||Filed under Sponsored|
The consumers have spoken! With more and more consumers voicing their opinions and concerns about where their food comes from, Hellman’s has joined other companies in a commitment to use 100% cage free eggs in all of their products by 2020. There’s a lot of controversy around this topic, but I am all for decisions that can help produce positive change — especially in regards to the ethical treatment of animals.
I don’t know about you, but mayo is a staple in my household. With eight Black Australorps, we had more eggs than we knew what to do with. Even though we could have made our own mayo, I wasn’t sure if I could trust myself with that task. Besides, it just didn’t taste the same. My fiance’s actually snickering at me because I was raised on Miracle Whip and it wasn’t until we started living together that I made the transition to mayo.
Anyway, mayo is for more than just sandwiches and potato salad. I use it to make a tempura-like batter and it is an excellent substitute for eggs and oil when baking. As a beauty treatment, you can combine it with mashed bananas for beautiful locks.
Oh, and check out this YouTube video featuring Chef Tim Love and Friends (Marcus Samuelsson, Mario Batali & Jonathan Waxman) from behind-the-scenes at the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen.
