I found 2 recipes for this on line. The comments both said increasing the powdered sugar to 2 Tablespoons made it as sweet as Miracle Whip is. I have not made it, but will forward recipe to my sister to test. She and i have the age old debate best Foods or Miracle Whip often. I added a picture from one of the recipes.
powdered sugar (see notes increased to 2 tablespoons and why))
lime or lemon juice
1Mix the first six ingredients together with a mixer or blender.
2Slowly pour in 1 cup oil, a few drops at a time, mixing thoroughly. This an important step.
3Add remaining 1/2 cup oil a little faster, carefully blending in each bit.
4Mix in 2 tbs of vinegar and set aside.
5In a separate bowl, mix cornstarch, mustard and 2 Tablespoons vinegar together till combined.
6Add to cornstarch mixture to boiling water and cook till smooth and pudding like. It should only take a few minutes.
7Slowly add the hot cornstarch/mustard mixture to the egg mixture and blend well.
8Refrigerate in airtight container or clean jar
9Makes enough to fill one 11.25 oz jar.
10NOTES: the comments all said it was not sweet enough so they added another Tablespoon powdered sugar, so i included changed recipe to two also added the paprika and garlic one recipe had (and is listed on the MW jar). Here is what one person said:
This is a very good base recipe for Miracle Whip. I found when I compared it side by side with Miracle Whip, it was not as sweet. So, I added another tablespoon of powdered sugar and that did the trick. Also, Miracle Whip has paprika and garlic in it. So, I added 1/4 teaspoon of paprika and 1/4 teaspoon of garlic. Tastes just like Miracle Whip to me!!! Good stuff!!
