Make your own prepared horseradish



Make your own prepared horseradish

In this week's box, you will find fresh horseradish root. And once you make your own prepared horseradish, you will never go back to the store-bought stuff!

  • 8-10-inch long piece of horseradish root
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1 Tbsp white vinegar
  • Pinch salt
  1. Peel and chop: Use a vegetable peeler to peel the surface skin off of the tuber. Chop into pieces.
  2. Grind in a food processor with water, add vinegar, salt: Put into a food processor. Add a couple tablespoons of water. Process until well ground. At this point be careful. A ground up fresh horseradish is many times as potent as freshly chopped onions and can really hurt your eyes if you get too close.
  3. Strain out some of the water if the mixture is too liquidy. Add a tablespoon of white vinegar and a pinch of salt to the mixture. Pulse to combine.
  4. Note that the vinegar will stabilize the level of hotness of the ground horseradish, so do not wait too long to add it to the mixture.
  5. Transfer to jar: Using a rubber spatula, carefully transfer the grated horseradish to a jar. It will keep for 3 to 4 weeks in the refrigerator.
