Prepared Horseradish


Servings: Fills up a pint jar plus a little more.

Prep Time: 30 minutes

  • 12 oz horseradish root Cleaned and scrubbed (Yes, by weight. Go buy a scale for crying out loud.)
  • 8 fluid oz water (That's one cup.)
  • 1 fluid oz white vinegar (That's two Tablespoons.)
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt

  • Instructions:

    Remove tops (if present) and clean the root pieces with a vegetable brush or plastic pot-scrubber. Use plenty of water and rinse often until the root is nearly all white in color. Grate all the root in a food processor, using the grater/shredder attachment. Reset the chamber for the bottom blade, and add the water and salt to the horseradish. Process the grated root for 3 minutes. If you're not satisfied with the consistency, continue processing in 30 second intervals until you are. Once desired consistency is reached, add the vinegar and process for one minute more. Put on some goggles (no, seriously) and move your macerate to tightly sealed jars. Refrigerate and use as needed.


    If you can rock the bottom blade and the grater on your food-pro simultaneously, I'd do it. It saves your sinuses one round of unnecessary torment.

    This stuff keeps forever if you don't cross-contaminate. However, you can expect the pungency to really fall off after a few months.
