horseradish - what do you do with it?
So i had a small oyster shucking party and now after everything is said and done i have 2 jars of horseradish left over: 1 normal, and 1 creamy.
i would hate to waste these, but i'm looking for some ideas - can i mix it into things? i know that it's most commonly used with beef or on a roast, but i don't eat much (if any) red meat. i've also heard it can be good mixed in with ketchup for a shrimp cocktail.
other than those 2 ideas - what else can i do with it??? any advice would be great!
i have to admit that a small part of me wants to mix it with mac and cheese b/c it might be interesting, but the rest of me feels like it would be a catastrophe. :)
cahalene - don't be silly and I vastly prefer the heat in a bloody to come from horseradish not tabasco.
think about borscht, it is becoming winter after all. really almost any dish that welcomes sour cream will also be hospitable to horseradish as well.
root vegetables and roasts. stuffed into a chicken cavity with lemon and fennel could be an interesting aromatic.
My go-to potato salad recipe has horseradish...
Creamy Horseradish Potato Salad
from Gourmet, June 2007
3 lbs. small (2-inch) boiling potatoes
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup sour cream
3 Tablespoons bottled white horseradish (not drained)
1 Tablespoon white-wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/3 cup chopped fresh chives
Boil potatoes until just tender. Cool to room temperature and quarter.
Whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream, horseradish, vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper in a large bowl until smooth. Add chives and potatoes and stir to coat.
I've folded it into mashed potatoes for an interesting kick - there's obviously the old stalwart, serving it with roast beef or tenderloin or meatloaf.
