- 2 egg yolks;
- 1 teaspoon of lemon juice or vinegar;
- ½ teaspoon of salt;
- ½ teaspoon of dry mustard (at will);
- 1 glass of sunflower, olive or any other oil.
Put egg yolks, lemon juice, salt and mustard into the bowl and blend them several times for breaking the yolks. Then start adding ½ glass of sunflower oil, blending your mixture after each adding. After that continue adding the rest of oil in amount of 1 tablespoon. Before adding the next oil portion make sure your mixture is completely homogeneous. Your mayonnaise will become denser and will get a bright shade.
After that add the rest half of the oil. The more oil you will add, the denser your mayonnaise will become. Add oil until you like the density.

Grate your ketchup on the sieve for more homogenous mixture, fill the jars with the mixture, cool it and put into the fridge. The expiration date of your home-maid ketchup is 14 days.
