Homemade Mayonnaise and Ketchup

Posted on April 2nd, 2013 by Discount Debbie

My family and I have been on a journey to eat less processed foods. That translates to much more fresh vegetables, local meats and more fruit. Unfortunately our grocery bill went up rather than down so I’ve been working on trying other ways to reduce our bill. One of the things I’ve been doing is making our own condiments. It’s incredibly easy, inexpensive and I am able to control the exact ingredients going into our foods. Plus, it just tastes better! These are the two I’ve made, next onto mustard!

Homemade Mayonnaise
Disclaimer: A lot people say you should be careful when consuming raw eggs.

What You Need
Stick blender-Go ahead and google it, I did. This really is the best tool
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 egg yolk
Pinch of sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp dijon mustard

What To Do
1. Put all your ingredients in a bowl.
2. Mix until you have mayo.

Yep it’s that easy! I always have these items on hand and it keeps in your fridge for about 5 days. SUPER yummy!

Homemade Ketchup
Since my daughter eats this like yogurt, I wanted to try a healthier version.

What You Need
12 ounces tomato paste
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon dry ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon kosher Salt
1/2 scant teaspoon cinnamon
2 pinches of ground clove
2 pinches of allspice
1 pinch of cayenne pepper
2/3 cup Water
4 tablespoons white vinegar

What To Do
1. Combine all ingredients and mix VERY well.
2. Place in jar or something else with a lid.
3. Let sit in fridge for a day or two. The longer you let it sit the better.
This will laste in the fridge for about 3 weeks.
