I made fresh horseradish sauce the other day. It went like this: I was at the shop making an advert about our upcoming "Naked Donut Day" and "Ugly Donut Day" and "Decorate Your Own Donut Day", when a woman brought in a bag of what looked like dirt and tree roots for me. I thanked her and then wondered what to do with the mess. She gave me a recipe that said, 1 cup ground horseradish, 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup vinegar, 1 tablespoon sugar, 1 tablespoon salt...mix. I asked her, "But what do I do with this stuff?" gesturing toward the dirt bag. She smiled and told me to use a potato peeler and then a blender...after I washed them of course.
Okay, so I washed and peeled the roots and when I surmised I had a cup I used the food processor and threw all the ingredients together.
It's good schtuff maynard. Will clean out your sinuses within an inch of the jar.
I wonder if there are any other recipes that people have used.
I saved a few roots and am going to plant them.
