Horseradish

I harvested, blessed and bathed the lovely garden roots.
I peeled their skins.
I chopped the roots and placed them lovingly in my very, very old food processor.
I gave them a whirl, added some infused viola apple cider vinegar and sea salt and gave them a few more whirls.

I packed it in a jar and placed it in the refrigerator and there it will please me for months to come!

While I'm not a huge fan of horseradish I do appreciate the info, tips and wonderful photos on this post.

Thanks for the comments, both of you!

Now ... if we can just entice more of the other "listeners" that own this blog to comment and post, we'll be beautifully re-rooted! :D

You are a strong woman to use that stuff!! I can barely sniff it without burning uncomfortably. POWER TO YOU!!! :)

I'll tell ya Julia, opening the lid and peaking inside to check the texture is ... ASTOUNDING! Breath needs to be timed on the *exhale* and even then the eyes will burn and water!

Truly it is a such lovely, delicious fire in a bottle!

Love the hot stuff. I especially like adding horseradish to cottage cheese - adds a lot of "zip" to it! I've never tried FRESH horseradish though--I'm sure it's 3x stronger than the store-bought stuff!!!

Homegrown horseradish is awesome Ruth, and yeah - it is far more vibrant anything you can buy.
