Number of Servings: 24


    2 egg yolks
    1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
    2 teaspoons lemon juice
    1 tablespoons white wine vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
    Freshly ground white pepper to taste
    Pinch of cayenne pepper
    1 cup light olive oil


Put the egg yolks, mustard, lemon juice, vinegar, salt, pepper, and cayenne in the bowl of a food processor or blender. Briefly blend the ingredients, but they should be well blended. Add the oil gradually, in a very thin stream, wiht the processor (or blender) running. When all the oil has been incorporated, check the mayonnaise. If it is too stiff, close the lid, turn the appliance back on, and add about a tablespoon of hot water. Always refrigerate mayonnaise.
