How would you approximate this Onion Blossom Horseradish dip?

I've never tried or even seen this product but want to make a recipe that uses it w/o spending the $10 + shipping to procure it.


Based on sight alone, plus the list of ingredients, what do you reckon the ingredients/method should be? I'm imagining the taste is a creamy, mustardy, roast oniony, horseradishy one. Long term preservation is not my goal so I am ot interested in bottling it.

    Lots of good ideas, thanks.

    I plan to make this recipe for V-Day:

      If I were to try reproduce this processed* product, I would use processed ingredients. (*I'm not judging processed products/dips, just giving my reasoning.)

      1) Mayo (covers soybean oil, water, vinegar, corn syrup, egg yolk)
      2) a bit of Ranch dressing (covers all of the above plus buttermilk, parsley, onion, garlic)
      3) prepared horseradish
      4) prepared mustard
      5) add onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt until it tastes as close as you can get it

      If a restaurant was serving this as a house-made dip to serve with their blooming onion, this is what I imagine they would do.

        If I were trying to duplicate this, I would make my basic roasted garlic horseradish sauce and add roasted onion to it and either some prepared mustard or mustard powder. Something like this:

        1 cup sour cream
        1 cup mayonnaise
        1 bulb of roasted garlic
        1 small to medium roasted onion
        1/4 cup prepared horseradish
        2 tablespoons prepared mustard
        Salt & pepper to taste

        Mix all ingredients together using an immersion blender and let sit, refrigerated, for at least one day before using so the flavors blend and become one. It may not be exactly the same as the one you linked to, but I bet it's tasty!

          Checked it out and my best suggestion is to get a dozen or so people to share a dozen jars with a discount ($53 for 6) and free shipping.
          Hey tcamp, I'm not being a smart ass; i'll take two (2)!
          I'm mad about horseradish!

          Also, do the buttermilk mayo base, adding savory mustard; do an onion blossom, chop and grind it all up, add garlic, freshly grated ginger, plenty of fresh grated horseradish root, more savory mustards, and add some tarragon.
          Grind all this together, blending well.
          Pump it up as required! You'll love it even if it isn't a match!
          If you require a match, keep in mind that you will need one of theirs in order to tune this up properly.

            From the ingredients it is a mayo and buttermilk base with the seasonings added.
