For this particular recipe, let's begin with the end in mind. Voila! Homemade ranch in a mason jar.
This ranch is quite tasty and doesn't have any ingredients in it that I can't pronounce. (My Mama taught me that the more things on a label's list of ingredients you can't pronounce, the less likely it is to be a healthy product. -- you know, like dianalyne guanalytic sulfonate or some such junk.)
You will need:
- 1 cup Mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup Plain yogurt (click here for easy homemade crockpot yogurt.)
- 1/4 cup Milk
- 1 tsp Dill weed
- 1 Large clove minced garlic (or 1 tsp garlic powder)
- 1 TBS Dried parsley
- 1 tsp Onion powder
You can try fresh dill, parsley or minced onion, but add more fresh than what is listed for dried above. Just whisk all the ingredients together with a wire whisk. If you make it in the blender, it will be runnier. After it is all mixed, pour it into a mason jar for storing in the fridge. When serving, use a spoon or pour it into a measuring cup that has a pour spout.
