I'm trying to make a zesty sauce from a mayo base/ketchup base mixture. Sometimes color turns out dark orange, sometimes off white, even though I'm using the same recipe. I'm thinking that how I make the mayo base could be altering the color of the final product. I'm looking to get a pale orange final color.
I've been making the mayo base using hand wisk, canola oil, white vinegar, lemon juice and egg yolks and like I've said, use the same process each time but can't explain the color difference. Any suggestions on what I can do to get a more consistent final product color?
