One of my dad's signature dishes. He loves making czwikla and always has extra jars on hand to pass around to family and neighbors.

Adjust the horseradish to your liking of "heat". The mount for this recipe results in a medium-sharp taste. My mother likes it mild, and I like it super-sharp; everyone will like it a little differently.

This dish tastes BEST with fresh mashed potatoes! *** Trust me on that... try it; its soooo good! **
