12 ounces fresh horseradish root*, peeled, rinsed, and cut into 2-in. chunks
1 cup chopped peeled beet
3/4 cup good-quality apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
How to Make It
In a food processor fitted with the coarse shredding blade, shred horseradish. Change to metal S-shaped blade and whirl horseradish to mince. Add beet; whirl to mince. Add vinegar, sugar, and salt and blend until smooth. Scrape into a bowl, cover, and chill airtight until serving.
I personally do not like beets or horseradish; however, my fiancé is Polish and LOVES this stuff, so the rating came from him :) It's extremely popular around his family at Easter. He was amazed at how good this turned out when I can't even taste it to adjust the seasonings. The only critique he had was to leave the ingredients grated. He said the S-blade made it too fine.
i made this to go with brisket. it was easy, attractive and tasty. i made it with golden beets to tone down the color. it was gorgeous. the horseradish was a little too pungent for my taste, so i allowed it to mellow at room temperature, uncovered, for a few hours and it was just right.
