Occasionally I use fresh herbs and capers but that takes it beyond straight mayo. Personally, I don't think dried herbs work in Mayo

I would give it a shot, Charlie. I use my FP to make nut butters, I don't see why it wouldn't work for mayo. Drizzle your oil through the chimney. Or whatever it's called.

I haven't make homemade mayo, Charlie, but I think a blender works better than a food processor. You need that vortex action that draws the mix down and around to blend it the right way. I THINK. What you really need is someone who KNOWS what they are talking about. Figured if I added something wrong we could call a knowing person out of the shadows.

I have made mayo in a blender. It didn't work as well as the immersion blender does. It didn't get as thick as "real mayo". I suspect the same would happen with a food processor. It did taste fine.

Never used a FP.

I have used a hand held mixer and a small bowl with good results.

I say give it a try and see what happens, if it doesn't work add some additional vinegar and herbs to create a new house salad dressing!

Well, yeah. But your idea means that someone can try an "iffy" idea and know that there doesn't need to be waste.
