You can't have Corned Beef and Cabbage
without horseradish sauce.
Horseradish roots, not so pretty are they?
This is what they look like this time of year. They are just beginning to show new growth.
In the Summer, the large horseradish leaves serve as a cushion for flowers along the rim of my water jug.
The horseradish plant is quite invasive. Encircle the plant with a ring of rocks or plant into a container.
Back to making Horseradish Sauce.
Clean and peel roots and cut into small pieces. Soak in Rice Vinegar to prevent them from turning brown. Grind in blender. Add coarse salt, rice vinegar and honey to taste.
Have some homemade Mayonnaise on hand if horseradish sauce is too hot.
Mix to taste.
Horseradish mixed with Rice Vinegar, Mayonnaise, salt and honey.
For the strong at heart nothing else will do but straight horseradish ground up and served as is.
The broken tips will be replanted right away.
Back into the ground.
In no time the roots will grow again and even surprise you with pretty flowers.
Now, to go along with your Reuben Sandwich, which you will fix yourself on the day after St. Patrick's Day, you did make some Sauerkraut last Fall, didn't you?
Have a great week my dear
