I learned to make this from an Amish friend who used to sell it at the local Farmer's Market.

How to Make How to Make Fresh Horseradish

Step-by-Step

  1. Purchase horseradish. OR If you have access to a garden horseradish plant, use a sturdy shovel to dig up an 8-10-inch long tuber of horseradish. (You can't pull it up.) (Don't plant it unless you want to keep it forever.) The plant itself, once established, propagates with tubers, and is very hardy. Wear gloves when hndling horseradish. Remove the leaves from the root and rinse the dirt off of the root.
  2. Use a vegetable peeler to peel the surface skin off of the tuber. Chop into pieces.

    Put into a food processor. Add a couple tablespoons of water. Process until well ground. At this point be careful. A ground up fresh horseradish is many times as potent as freshly chopped onions and can really hurt your eyes if you get too close. Keep at arms length away, and work in a well ventilated room. Strain out some of the water if the mixture is too liquidy. Add a tablespoon of white vinegar and a pinch of salt to the mixture. Pulse to combine.
    Note that the vinegar will stabilize the level of hotness of the ground horseradish, so do not wait too long to add it to the mixture.
  3. Using a rubber spatula, carefully transfer the grated horseradish to a jar. It will keep for 3 to 4 weeks in the refrigerator.
