Mason Jar Ranch is one of the best Ranch Dressings/Dips you will ever taste. We dubbed it Mason Jar Ranch because you can make it and store it directly in the Mason Jar. This recipe is so easy, and takes just minutes to make.
You are literally going to put all of your ingredients into your Jar…yup, throw em in there! The critical factor of this recipe is an immersion blender or stick blender. NO, you cannot use a food processor or regular blender to get this right, you must use an immersion blender. If you don’t have one stop what your doing and get one. You won’t regret it, you can find them and any big box store or on amazon here. (I like this one because the base is removable for easy washing) I use mine all the time, for making mayo, mashing cauliflower, silky smooth applesauce and even milkshakes for the kids. Immersion blenders are a kitchen must have and small enough to fit in a drawer.
Tips and Tricks:
An Immersion Blender or “Stick Blender” is required, DO NOT use a regular blender or food processor.
Make this in a Mason Jar or the Jar that comes with your Immersion Blender, using something too wide will not work. The minimal space around the blender head allows the egg and oil to emulsify properly.
This uses raw eggs, and while I am not concerned personally. (and, I use chicken eggs from our own chickens collected daily) Using raw eggs in this is personal choice and you can always use pasteurized eggs. Note: there is always a risk of salmonella when using raw eggs.
If for some reason your Mason Jar Ranch is not emulsifying, add another egg, and blend it once again!
If your Ranch is too thick you can add a little extra half & half, Almond milk etc after blending to get to the desired consistency. I like mine thick of dunking pretzels, veggies and better yet Keto/Low Carb Chicken Strips!
You can replace the dried herbs for fresh herbs, a good handful will do. If you do use fresh herbs, add these at the end after the other ingredients are emulsified. Give it another blend for 10-15 seconds. Adding them at the beginning will result in a “Green” Dressing/Dip.
Store in the refrigerator for up to a week. Do not Freeze as the emulsion will break.
