Prepared Horseradish

Ready-made horseradish can be bought in any supermarket, but when fresh horseradish root is available in early spring, prepare it yourself -- the fresher the root, the sharper the bite.

  • Yield: Makes 1 cup

Source: Martha Stewart Living, April 2000


  • 1 four-ounce piece horseradish root, peeled
  • 1/2 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  1. Chop the horseradish root into 1/2-inch pieces. Place in the bowl of a food processor with vinegar, salt, and sugar.

  2. Puree until finely minced and well combined, about 1 minute. Transfer to an airtight container, and refrigerate. Prepared horseradish will keep up to 2 weeks.
