Directions:
Combine egg yolk, lemon juice, vinegar, mustard, and ½ teaspoon salt in medium bowl. Whisk until blended and bright yellow, about 30 seconds. (If you don’t want to whisk, this can be done in a stand mixer at a low setting with the whisk attachment.)

Using ¼ teaspoon measure and whisking constantly, add ¼ cup oil to yolk mixture, a few drops at a time, about 4 minutes. Gradually add remaining ½ cup oil in very slow thin stream, whisking constantly, until mayonnaise is thick, about 8 minutes (mayonnaise will be lighter in color). Cover and chill. do ahead. Can be made up to 2 days ahead. Keep chilled.

For aoli, add chopped fresh garlic before chilling.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
In reviewing and collecting recipes from the Youngs and Rubens, it is obvious that we take our mayo seriously. Both families seem to have sworn an oath of loyalty to Hellman's (referenced by brand in most recipes) and I can't remember a meal at Grandma Charlotte's that didn't involve a giant tub of it with the blue and yellow label. Sometimes a recipe is really improved with homemade mayonnaise from scratch. It makes a world of difference in French cooking, and if you're serving it as a dipping sauce or aoli.
