Chrain With Beets (Red Horseradish)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by AniSarit

I make this every year for Passover, a special spicy treat on top of homemade Gefilte Fish. I would make it more often, but I'm really sensitive, and this makes my eyes burn and tear - consider that a warning. Nonetheless, it's sad to finish the homemade jar, because going back to storebought is dreadful.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grate the beets into a bowl using the fine side of a hand grater (wear gloves or you'll have some real memories that will last for days).
  2. Finely grate the horseradish into the bowl (do not touch your face!).
  3. Add the vinegar, salt, and sugar, and taste for seasoning.
  4. Let stand at room temperature for 2 hours before serving.
  5. Store covered in the refrigerator; will keep for several weeks with same strength, and afterwards, the intensity will be reduced.
