Apfelkren - Austrian Horseradish Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by LilKiwiChicken

This is a condiment from Austria that is traditionally served with boiled beef. It is nice with smoked meats as well. If you want to make this milder, add more sour cream/cream.

Picked this for the Australia/New Zealand swap #4. I have always liked horeradish sauces. This is a really keeper. The grated apple and touch of sugar offer a nice contrast to the sharpness of the horseradish herb. I wouldn't change a thing. I made this to have on a roast beef sandwich but my next taste of this will be on ham. Really good.

  1. Stir 1T of the lemon juice into the grated horseradish (to stop it going brown). If using prepared horseradish skip this step.
  2. Grate the apple & mix with the horseradish and the remaining 1T of lemon juice.
  3. Add salt & sugar to taste & leave to stand for 10 minutes.
  4. Lightly beat the double cream & fold in the sour cream until combined.
  5. Mix this into the horseradish mixture & serve.
