Well, Linda does not live on the property anymore and we do not have access to the wild horseradish but we still craved that fresh grated, robust flavor. I am of Polish descent and Kevin is of German descent and we LOVE horseradish. While at a market in Chicago a few weekends ago, I found a fairly large horseradish root and thought I would pick it up and put up a few pints.
or add chopped root with vinegar and salt to the blender and blend until finely grated.
If using the blender method, a one pound root will require about 1 1/4 cups of vinegar and 2 1/2 teaspoons salt. Chop the root into 1-inch pieces and place in the blender with the vinegar and salt. Pulse or set the blender on the grate setting and process until desired consistency is achieved.
Store in the refrigerator for up to one year. Note: The longer the horseradish sits, the stronger the flavor will be.
