1 tb Cornstarch
1 1/2 ts Dry mustard, ; preferably Colmans
1 ts Sugar
1/2 ts Salt, ; or more to taste
Pinch of ground red pepper; (cayenne)
3/4 c Buttermilk
1 lg Egg
2 tb Fresh lemon juice

In a medium saucepan, whisk cornstarch, mustard, sugar, salt and red pepper. Add 1/4 cup of the buttermilk and whisk until you have a smooth paste. Add egg and the remaining 1/2 cup buttermilk and whisk until smooth.

Set the pan over mediumlow heat and cook, whisking, until the mixture comes to a simmer and thickens. Continue to whisk for 15 seconds, then remove the pan from the heat.

Whisk in lemon juice and oil. Transfer the mayonnaise to a small bowl and press a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface to prevent a skin from forming. Let cool. (The mayonnaise can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days; whisk briefly before using.)
