INGREDIENTS

Nutrition
  • 1 -2
    lb fresh horseradish root (root about 12 inches, good quality root white, clean, firm, and free from cuts and blemishes)
  • 3
    ice cubes
  • 1
    teaspoon salt
  • 14

DIRECTIONS

  • Place 3 ice cubes in a food processor.
  • Remove peel with a sharp knife or vegetable peeler.
  • Cut into pieces the size of the ice cubes and rinse.
  • Placing root in food processor with salt and pulse till fine.
  • Add chilled water only if needed. I try not to because I don`t like it watered down.
  • Let sit in processor for 3-4 minutes to produce heat. Then add vinegar and pulse to blend.
  • If the heat is not desired go ahead and add the vinegar without waiting.
  • Jar the ground horseradish keeping the fumes away from eyes and nose. It`s powerful! So do be careful.
