I have used Plain low fat yogurt mixed with some apple cider vinegar. Doesn't taste bad at all. And if you want more of the actual mayo taste to it, add some regular mayo, and you will have your own homemade reduced fat mayo.

The shelf life of homemade mayo would be 1-2 days, I used it at 3 days and never got sick. For a 1 egg amount, not worth the hassle and it's a small amount anyway.

On a side note, I went to a small political gathering of around 20 people last night. They used a culinary student for the catering (food was very good) and she stated everything was from scratch. My wife asked if she made the mayo too, she said No! Then she related the story how the teachers would force them to make it with a hand whisk. I'd agree, it's a lot of forearm effort, I prefer a small handheld blender.

When we were discussing the egg recall, I came across this:

Egg Recall for Salmonella - Data, Action?


Quote:
The fate of Salmonella enteritidis PT4 in home-made mayonnaise prepared with citric acid solution (citric acid concentration of > or = 4.98% (w/v)) was investigated. ... For the use of 20-35 ml pure lemon juice per egg yolk, the product should be held at 22 degrees C or over for at least 72 h and for the use of over 35 ml pure lemon juice per egg yolk, for at least 48 h before consumption or refrigeration.
So they are recommending that you actually keep it for three days at room temperature ((22C ~ 72F) BEFORE you use it! I guess that gives time for the acid to kill stuff. Just the opposite of what we all 'know'.

Actually, I'm not sure it really is the opposite of what we 'know'. It's probably the perception of what we think we know...isn't this how we buy store bought mayo? Room temp for way more than 3 days. That's why there's a preference to homemade, the flavor gets lost in all the commercial treatments applied to it!

Coincidently, Mark Bittman has an article, with recipe, in the NYTimes Dining section today on homemade Mayo:

Food-Processor Mayonnaise

He includes a couple dozen variations so it is worth the look.

I just got my shipment of Duke's mayonnaise full fat, baby, from Dukes Corp. from the net. Delicious...you Duke's lovers are right. It is the best.

Thanks to this thread, I made a cup of aioli with a stick blender earlier this week. Took about 30 seconds once I had the yolk separated and the lemon juiced. We ate it on BLTs and last night I slathered it on chicken breasts and covered them in panko for a quick bake and broil. Really, really good.
