ISO Horseradish - Where's the good stuff?
Who makes an excellent prepared product, and where is it sold?
Mrs Whites, Strubs, Feature, etc continue to disappoint
Where's the good stuff?
( preferably white - not infused with beet juice)
Thanks in advance
Like others on this thread, I lean towards the Kozlik's product - $5 at the Kozlik's stall in St. Lawrence Market. It does what any good horseradish should do: clears the sinuses, sears the brain, makes the eyes water, causes the earlobes to quiver, and lets bygones be bygones. But I recognize that, in a pinch, just about any supermarket white horseradish will do pretty much the same thing - at about half the price.
Red horseradish is for sissies.
I really like horseradish, and I have been grating the whole root into the food processor, then switching out the shredder for the blade, adding a bit of salt (maybe 1/2 teasp.), some sugar (a teaspoon or so), then processing with maybe a cup of cider vinegar until it's the right consistancy.
The root costs me about $4 at the grocery (I've found it at Kroger and Walmart, so it's not difficult to find), and I get at least 1 1/2 cups of horseradish out of it.
In a pinch, I'll use whatever is in the cold section of the grocery store.
