Horseradish .. Use 'er Up

It's late spring in the North Woods.  Not quite full swing in the garden, but there are nibbles here and there that can be put to good use.  Tonight I'm making another soup that includes an invasive 'weed' ... otherwise known as horseradish; you either LOVE it or HATE it.  We happen to LURVE it with a passion!  (Garden tip ~ keep it in a designated area and you will be blessed.)

Here are a few tips for using horseradish.  Add:

  • a little to homemade mayo
  • to cream of broccoli or mushroom soup
  • mix with sour cream or plain whipped cream as relish/sauce for roast beef
  • mix with sour cream as a topping for baked potatoes
  • mix mayo, mustard and a little horseradish for a yummy sandwich spread
Do you have a favorite use for horseradish?

Mixed with ketchup and a little lemon juice for a shrimp dipping sauce.

Yes I love it with roast beef and that's about all I love it with. However, I have run out and forgot to buy some more yesterday. I must remember it next week. It grows wild around these parts, but since we don't eat that much of it, it is worth just buying a little.
Thank you for the recipe.
