A very easy ketchup basic recipe. It’s simple to spice up with whatever you like. The mayonnaise is my favourite super simple basic recipe. Perfect sauces for BBQ, hamburgers fries or whatever you like to serve with ketchup and mayonnaise.
First clean and chop the tomatoes into small cubes. Peel the onion and cut it into small pieces as well and brown it with some olive oil in a pot. Add all the other ingredients. Now, let simmer for 40 min, stir in between.
After that, let the ketchup cool down and season if needed. Blend the mass for 5 min until it's smooth. Now you can sift it if you want. (I don't ;) Cooled down, it is ready to eat now.
For the mayonnaise: Your egg yolk should be room temperature. Put it with a bit salt and pepper as well as the lemon juice in a bowl. Mix for 1 min with your mixer.
Now the oil has to be added very carefully by pouring it in slowly (fine stream) while mixing the mass with the handmixer or kitchen machine. This way the oil mingles well with the egg yolk. Note: It is very very important to add the oil as slowly as possible in a very fine stream. If you pay attention to that, the mayonnaise is actually quite simple to make. Add the yogurt and mustard, mix and season your mayonnaise. The mayonnaise is now ready and can be enjoyed or processed further.
Airtight closed, the ketchup can be kept for at least 1 to 2 months.
