1. In a large non-metallic bowl, combine egg yolk and remaining ingredients except the oil.
2. Rest the bowl on a damp kitchen cloth to prevent it from sliding when whisking.
3. Measure the oil in a pouring cup or jar.
4. Whisk the yolk lightly with a wire whisk to blend with seasonings and vinegar.
5. Trickle the oil about a teaspoon at a time, whisking constantly.
6. Once the emulsion begins to thicken, pour the remaining oil in a thin steady stream, whisking continuously until the oil is incorporated and the mayonnaise is thick.
7. Add the boiling water and whisk to whiten the mayonnaise and thin the consistency if using it as a dressing.

8. Use the mayonnaise as a dressing, dip or sauce as required.
