Horseradish is a root vegetable that is very spicy and adds flavour to meat and fish dishes. It is used alone or mixed with other ingredients to create sauces and condiments. To have a supply that lasts the winter, you can grow horseradish in your home garden and freeze it or preserve it in vinegar. Frozen horseradish lasts six months in the freezer while preserved horseradish lasts three months in the refrigerator.

  1. 1

    Peel and grate the horseradish using a sharp knife and vegetable grater. Grate 2 cups of horseradish.
