Horseradish sauce

Delphine Mar 16, 2009 10:30 AM

Does anyone have a recipe for horseradish sauce that uses fresh horseradish root? I am also looking for a good mustard sauce.
I appreciate any help you can provide.

    I am making mine tonight to go with my corned beef and cabbage for tomorrow.

      This was out of some cook book my mom gave me. I have used it for years.

      About 3/4 lb horseradish root
      4 tablespoons mayo I don't like too much, you can add more or less if you want
      1/4 cup heavy cream to thin it out a bit for a nice consistency
      1 tablespoon dijon
      White pepper and salt to taste
      NOTE: I have also used sour cream instead of mayo and also yogurt, all work just fine

      1 cup heavy cream
      1/2 cup Dijon mustard
      1 small shallot fine diced
      OPTIONAL: a dash of horshradish, some fresh tarragon, even sub sour cream for mustard
      Salt and pepper to taste

      Just saute the shallot in some butter, add the mustard and then cool and add the cream

      This is another I have made before which is good

        I use kchirchill's approach for the horseradish sauce, using sour cream instead of cream AND adding a squeeze of lemon juice--the horseradish has a surprising sweetness to it.

          Lemon is good, depends what I am using it for. Corned beef and cabbage no, but if serving with lamb, I do add it. It is simple and easy.
