So last Fall, after my horseradish plant leaves had turned brown...I dug up and harvested some of the root to make homemade horseradish. I wanted to share these photos of my small production - and when I say small it was really small. Hopefully at the end of next season I will yield more - but for one growing season it was a good learning experience.
So the above photo was my horseradish root after I cleaned it up. Below is my horseradish processing station - which had to be outside because of the strong horseradishy smell that will burn your nostrils - ha
So after grinding up the horseradish root in the food processor, I just added some vinegar. It was very tasty and I think I got about 1/4 cup of homemade horseradish.
It was delicious! Love that horseradish - especially on hamburger patties!! Grow some -
