Horseradish - Homemade

Recipe by Chuck in Killbuck

A simple recipe for plain ol' Homemade Horseradish. I make a lot at once and I put mine in the fridge for 3-4 days then transfer all but one to the freezer. Note: Prep Time and Servings depends on the amount of Horseradish you have and want to make. I also recommend you make this outdoors or in a well ventilated area.

Oh but I do love homemade horseradish! This is the way I was taught to do it too. I always end up with tears streaming down my face and my eyes burning, but it's so worth it.
