Horseradish Grinding Instructions

What you will need:

  • Horseradish roots
  • white vinegar
  • sugar
  • ice cubes
  • glass blender
  • small glass jars


To grate your own horseradish, wash and peel the root like you would a potato

and dice it into small cubes. Place the cubes in the glass blender. Process no more than

half a container load at a time. Add a small amount of cold water and crushed ice.

Start with enough cold water to completely cover the blades of the blender. If

necessary add more water or crushed ice to complete the grinding.  You may need

to stop the blender and stir the horseradish as you add the cubes. When the mixture

reaches the desired consistency add vinegar.


The time at which you add the vinegar is important because it stops the enzymatic

action in the ground product and stabilizes the degree of hotness. If you prefer it not

as hot  add vinegar immediately and if you like it really hot wait three minutes before

adding the vinegar.


Use 2-3 tablespoons of white vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon of salt for each cup of grated

horseradish. ( One tablespoon of sugar may be substituted for the salt.) Also if

desired lemon juice may be substituted for the vinegar to give it a slightly different



Place the mixture in small glass jars and screw the lids on firmly. Store in the refrigerator or

freezer.  Remember to only prepare the amount of horseradish that can be used in a resonable

time.  It will keep good quality for about four to six weeks in the refrigerator and for six months or longer in the freezer.  Fresh roots may be stored for several months if they are washed, places in polyethylene bags, and stored at 34-36°F.
