To make horseradish sauce, first I am telling you that if you are preparing your own horseradish then you will need to start by grating fresh horseradish root. As a precautionary measure, beware that the fumes from grating horseradish can be quite strong and can even cause tears. Once the horseradish is grated, it is combined with vinegar and salt and allowed to sit for several minutes to develop its flavor.
After the horseradish has had time to sit, it is then mixed with cream or sour cream to create a smooth and creamy sauce. The amount of cream used can vary depending on how thick or thin you want your sauce to be.
WAYS TO USE HORSERADISH SAUCE
Horseradish sauce is a versatile condiment that can be used in a variety of ways. Here are some of the most common uses for horseradish sauce:
- As a topping for roast beef sandwiches
- As a condiment for grilled or roasted meats
- As a dip for vegetables, chips, or crackers
- As a spread for sandwiches or wraps
- As a topping for baked potatoes or sweet potatoes
Horseradish sauce can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. It's important to note that the sauce may lose some of its potency as it sits, so you may want to taste it before using it on your food.
If you have leftover horseradish sauce and want to freeze it, it can be frozen for up to 3 months. Simply transfer the sauce to an airtight container or freezer bag, being sure to leave some room at the top for expansion. When you're ready to use the sauce, thaw it in the refrigerator overnight and give it a good stir before serving.
It's worth noting that freezing may change the texture of the sauce slightly, so it may not be as smooth and creamy as it was before freezing. However, the flavor should remain intact, so it's a great way to extend the life of your leftover horseradish sauce.
