Fresh Grated Horseradish

Fresh Grated HorseradishMaking fresh horseradish is very simple. As a person who doesn’t like mayo I prefer to make mine not creamy. The recipe below is as basic as it comes, but you will be surprised at the amount of heat and even sweetness fresh grated horseradish root carries on it’s own. The vinegar is a must to soften it and draw the flavors together, and the addition of just a little salt finishes it off. If you prefer, you can add an amount of sugar but I never do.
