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.
My DH made this using the blender after peeling & cut it up with a meat hatchet. Prepration was very easy. It seemed VERY mild at first but after a week it is still inproving. We love it in & on all kinds of foods. Thanks Chuck, for posting the recipe.
I made this and use it constantly with meals. I'ts time to make more. I made it in the kitchen with a blender and it was STRONG - even made my cat cry and sneeze.
resubmitted -- corrections I love "real" horseradish and have made my own several times, so I can attest to the simplicity and authenticity of this recipe. The "killer" part of the prep are steps 2 and 4. You can make step 2 go a whole lot faster and with less watery eyes by using a little Japanese tool - a Benriner spiral slicer. Cost is about $30, and it can be used to make thin spiral potatoes, apples, etc., as well, which can be deep fried and made as a bed for fish, other items. Anyway, it makes "scraping bare" go fast and beautifully. The grating can be done with a food processor, but these tend to tear the root, rather than really grate it. There are a number of ceramic graters (available in asian markets and gourmet cookware supplies -- I got mine for ginger) that work wonderfully, as well as a MicroPlane grater. Either should allow you to avoid bloody knuckles and fingers. Anyway, try this ... and prepare to fall in love with your very own horseradish! Thanks, Chuck, for sharing!
Wow sorry Chuck.I thought I reviewed this a while ago. Good stuff! I did have a hard time with being able to see. My eyes were watering so bad. Bad so worth it! I used the food processor. And made some with beets.Outdoors is a great idea!!!!!!!!
