Many years ago I used to use a recipe for making mayo with an electric hand mixer. A lot easier that all that beating with a wooden spoon of hand whisk. I haven't tried it in the FP. I don't need that much at any one time.

The Swiss immersion blender "Bamix" can make a very fast mayo - the demo on television shows everything slung into the goblet together and whizzed with the Bamix. Oddly enough it works but I wouldn't try it with any other machinery.

I don't make it any longer, what with the salmonella/raw eggs panic of a few years ago and the government advice to refrain from anything containing raw egg if you are elderly. I use Hellman's or Aldi's version.
Donít look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.
