You might remember more than a month ago I wrote a blog post about getting all of the plants moved from the farm house to this house. Well when we did that we dug up the horseradish, trimmed the bottoms off and replanted the crowns.
We had really good intentions of getting horseradish made but it got late and then we had a series of things going on in the evening several nights in a row. Sunday Hubby was cleaning the garage and UGH….there was the long forgotten horseradish. We debated what to do and then Hubby finally said-why not, we have nothing to loose.
Hubby pealed it and was then suddenly was called off to a first responder call leaving me to tend to it on my own. UGH…I don’t like horseradish and don’t really use it at all. Hubby…he loves it.
So I sputter and cried my way through the process. I followed all the directions from this Youtube video. I worked with the food processor in the kitchen then moved it out to the garage to actually put it in jars.
It only took about a half hour but I spent most of the time with either my eyes closed or crying. It was MUCH better than last time though. I swear last time I burned my throat and lungs. I felt it for days. This time is was more like the peeling the worst onion ever times five.
I quickly wrote a little note and left it on the work bench in the garage.
I don’t do fancy things for Hubby…just the little things like make horseradish…and add an occasional note.
I am so glad that task is done for a year or so. The new crowns will take a bit to get re-established so there won’t be any horseradish making here for a bit…thank goodness!!
