I always thought horseradish was a mysterious and mystical substance that wandered around the grocery store in little jars begging someone to love it. Not so. It's actually just a root, and prepared horseradish requires nothing more than a grater, a few pantry ingredients, and (optionally) long arms since horseradish, like raw onions, will go after your nose if you dare to come at it with a grater.

Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients

8 oz. horseradish root
1/2 c. white vinegar
2 tbsp. water
2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt

I first learned how pungent horseradish was several years ago when I put some root in a blender, whizzed it and then took a big sniff. It felt like I'd been punched in the face it was so strong. I've made horseradish sauce several times since with a recipe very similar to yours and it certainly peps up the Sunday roast beef.

Just a suggestion : How about a section on recognising and harvesting horseradish.
