Ms. De Turk’s Mayonnaise
One egg yolk, adding salt, pepper (red), sugar, onion juice to taste. Beat a few minutes and add the juice of a medium sized lemon all at once and stir; then add olive oil slowly at first, and as the mixture thickens add the oil in larger quantities. It will become thick enough to cut with a knife. If too thick, thin with more lemon juice or vinegar. Beat well as you add the oil. This is the best recipe I have ever used, as it is quickly made and it never fails. Anna De Turk, 201 Pierce street.
