Ingredients
  Egg yolks 2
  Cider vinegar 1 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Sugar 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  White pepper 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Cayenne pepper To Taste (Few Grains)
  Dry mustard 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Salad oil 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Lemon juice 1 Tablespoon
Directions

Put the egg yolks, vinegar, salt, sugar, peppers, and dry mustard into a small bowl.
Beat with a hand rotary beater until well blended.
Add oil, 1 teaspoon at a time at first, beating vigorously after each addition.
Gradually increase amounts added until one half of the oil has been used.
Alternately beat in small amounts of remaining oil and a few drops lemon juice.
(If mayonnaise separates because oil has been added too rapidly, beat it slowly and thoroughly into 1 egg yolk, 1 tablespoon cold water, small quantity of vinegar, or a small portion of smooth mayonnaise.) Store in covered container in refrigerator.
