    Mirj's Note:

    I found this recipe for homemade Miracle Whip in the local paper. Miracle Whip is not available where I live, so it's nice to have a jar of this in the fridge.

      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!!

      As a Southern boy, one of my favorite foods was saltines spread with Miracle Whip. So I know my "Whip". However, I found myself out on day and had to improvise. This recipe fit the bill after a few modifications. First, as shown, it's too "lemony". I reduced the lemon juice by two teaspoons. Second, this recipe was not nearly as sweet as Miracle Whip. Accordingly, I increased the powdered sugar by a tablespoon. After the mods, the recipe was a very good imitation of the original article. It works in a pinch. By the way, Mirj, where could one possibly live that Miracle Whip is not available? Being a "die hard" MW lover, I would be glad to send you some.

      I made this yesterday, following the suggestions to increase the ps and decrease the lemon juice - EXCELLENT!! I took a sample to work and everyone raved about it. This will be all I use from now on - tastier and cheaper than the real thing!

      Thanks Mirj!
