Horseradish Sauce

I absolutely love the peppery and spicy kick that my horseradish sauce has. It's perfect on grilled steak or fish and so easy to make as long as you can buy fresh horseradish root.

If you cant, there are deli's and supermarkets that stock prepared horseradish ready for you to make this sauce. Ready made jars of horseradish cream in the supermarket don't event come close to making it from scratch at home. Check out my recipe below.

What does horseradish look like? It doesn't look pretty, can grow out of control in a garden and can definitely clear your sinuses when grated!

My recipe is easy to make and keeps in the fridge for at least 5 days. If you prefer a thicker consistency which is more like a horseradish cream... use sour cream.

You'll need a food processor (or if you prefer it chunky which I do sometimes, just stir the ingredients until well combined).
