Make your own Horseradish this Passover.

For as long as I can remember, growing up in Denver and sitting at the Seder table with my family, our joke was that “My Bubie Wax’s horseradish cleaned out the sinus!” For many years I used store-bought horseradish, but with my brother, Steve’s, help we developed our own homemade-sinus-clearing-recipe. I, myself, am allergic to all fish, so my plate doesn’t have gefitle fish. I liberally coat my matzah with this delicious and powerful relish.

 This horseradish keeps well refrigerated in a tightly-sealed glass jar. I even use it on prime rib, or as a side for a turkey sandwich!


 Alef Bet Jewelry’s Homemade Horseradish

 (Don’t you dare go out and buy horseradish!)

 ½ pound horseradish root, peeled and cut into 1” pieces

 1 fresh medium-sized beet, peeled and cut into 1” pieces

 ½ cup cider vinegar

 ¼ cup water

 ¼ cup sugar

 ½ teaspoon salt

 Put half of the horseradish and beet dice into the blender or food processor with the water, vinegar, sugar, and salt. After chopping for about 30 seconds slowly drop in the rest of the horseradish and beets and continue until everything is consistently chopped.
