Prepared Horseradish

Horseradish is an easy plant to grow and harvest, simply dig up some roots! We have tried many ways to preserve it, but this recipe has worked well; it is easy and tasty!

Prepared Horseradish

1 cup horseradish root
1/2 cup vinegar

Wash horseradish root and peel.
Chop the roots and put in a blender with the vinegar.
Blend until well chopped. Be careful removing the lid, the horseradish will be quite strong.
You can also grate the root by hand and then add the vinegar, mixing well.
Pack into clean jars and store in the refrigerator.
Prepared horseradish will start to loose its strength after about a month.

  1. Lovely stuff!!! We are lucky to have a small commercial grower not far away who produces a great product so I don't try now just let them do it.My favourite is beetroot and horseradish together, so delicious.Also enjoy the garlic and horseradish.
    Well done you!

  3. Wow - I can smell it all the way in TX. I remember my mom having horseradish on ham growing up and my husband will eat it with his prime rib....so, how often do you use horseradish and on what? The plant looks wonderful. Very pretty flower. (I know you used horseradish in the zuc relish you posted). Emily

  4. We use it in baked beans and mashed potatoes (added after cooking). I haven't had it with ham, but that sounds quite good. A friend swears by it when he is coming down with a cold, he eats it by the spoonful!

  6. It is really good in baked beans, sometimes there is almost as much horseradish as beans!
