Tomato-horseradish Sauce

"I make this when my tomatoes are ripe. It only makes 1 pint so it is very quick and easy. Great to serve with meat. Even if you don't can very often this is something that is easy and fast to do."

  1. I was searching for a tomato-horseradish sauce recipe by Geneva Michaels that on page 314 in Farmhouse Cookbook - A Full Larder and the ingredients in this recipe are an exact match! I had the ingredients for Geneva's recipe but not the directions. Thank you Mary Winecoff for contributing this recipe to be included on
  2. I tell you what, this could also be marketed as a _sinus clearer_ because the fumes while it's cooking are potent! I have not breathed this freely in years. :-) DH, the heat and horseradish lover in the family, gave this 2 thumbs up! To please his palate, I went all in with the cayenne using the full 1/2 tsp. Since it made such a small amount and I knew it would quickly be eaten, I didn't bother with the canning process and will store it in the fridge for it's short life. Thanks for a great recipe!


I have two boys who will usually eat most things I put in front of them. As a single mom I use them as my guinea pigs....sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I have a huge garden, blueberry and blackberry bushes. I am always looking for a new recipe. I have three cats (Xiao Mao, which means little cat in Chinese, Pumpkin and Max) and two border collies, Lucy and Grace. All my animals come from Rescue Agencies. <a href="¤t=rsc002.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"><a href="¤t=006.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a><a href="¤t=hilfiger001.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
