How to Make A Kinder, Gentler Horseradish Sauce
- Chef's Note: For this sauce to work, it needs a really good "pure" horseradish. You might even go crazy, buy some horseradish plant and grate your own. However, if you do remember one thing. Once exposed to air, if not used immediately or mixed in vinegar, the grated mash darkens, loses its pungency, and becomes unpleasantly bitter-tasting. I HATE it when that happens.
- Season with salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste. Finally, add the chives and stir to incorporate.
Chef's Note: Salt is an interesting ingredient... we love what it does to dishes, and in some cases, the addition of salt can make some dishes taste (to our brain) sweeter. But watch how much you add. In a sauce, the addition of salt can intensify over time. So, watch how much you add.
