European sailors in the 1700s called this “midshipman's butter” because they liked to spread it on hardtack biscuits. It's a great vegan substitute for mayonnaise because it has no eggs in it, and you can also use it as a sandwich spread, a condiment for grilled meats, or as a dip for veggies or chips.
