I've resently started growing my own horseradish. And while my 1st & 2nd attempts turned out okay, they left alot to be desired. Any suggestions or recipe's out there??

We don't grow things here in Vegas. We import everthing from somewhere else! I wish I lived somewhere that we had locally grown produce.

You know, Joanne, when I used to live in Vegas, there was a white grape plant in my back yard. I used to joke that my dog grew them because that's the only moister they ever received.

Isn't that the truth! We've been in a drought for years and years. The lake is lower than it's ever been since it was filled originally. It would be great if we would get into a wet cycle before we all dry up and blow away.

Mike, How long have you been growing your Horseradish? I hope you don't have it where it can damage or take over other desireable plants. If you do, your in for a war. Laughing I started with one cutting and now have over 40 plants. Yes I have been harvesting. I have it isolated in my garden and roto till in one direction so as not to help the spread.
Round Up will kill the volunteers. Just don't spray the main plant.

The only thing I have done with it is make "prepared Horseradish".

Clean it,
Cut up in small chunks
put in blender and chop it up.
Add about 1/2 tsp salt and 1Tbs to 1/4 cup white vinegar to pulp and mix well. The sooner you put in the vinegar the hotter the mix will be. (I think) I just know that the fresh stuff is better than the store bought.

The mix will be good for about 1 week in frig. It also freezes.
It doesn't take much to get a good size batch.

I use the Cocktail Sauce as my salad dressing (no oil) I call it the poor mans Shrimp Coctail.

Enjoy.

PS Google horseradish, you will find uses and recipes.

Thanks OP, this is the 3rd year & it took right off! so I've been digging the whole thing up, replanting it & throwing away the extra. I don't know if it'll work or not, Iguess time will tell, so long as it dosn't get into my asperigas.
I've noticed the older growth is hotter but much tougher, do you use the new growth or the old growth, too.

Fancy that .... It was my asparagus that I was protecting as well. There ain't nothin going to threaten my asparagus with out a fight. Even if I have to sleep out there at night. Arrrg!

What I do is harvest 1 row and roto till the other row under. You will be surprised at how many new plants you get.

I leave the "tenacles" and harvest the tough center root.

Back in my long ago childhood, we never planted asparagus. We just cruised along the fence posts where the birds had planted the seeds naturally. Laughing The problem was back then I did "not get asparagus."
