Jeanie's Homemade Horseradish

My sister, Jeanie, gave me this recipe. I'm not sure where she got it, but like I always say, she's the one who brought it to me, so she's the one who gets the credit. If you're a fan of the regular jarred horseradish, then you MUST try this. It's SO much better! It's really simple to make too. Oh, and it's a great way to clear your sinuses!!!
Thanx My Jeanie!

1 large horseradish root
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 tbs. sugar (more or less to taste)
1 tsp. salt

Wash horseradish root well and use a vegetable peeler to remove skin. Wash again. Your eyes will water, your nose will run. Cut horseradish root into small chunks and put into food procesor. Pulse to a fine mince. Add vinegar, sugar and salt. Store in refrigerator in tightly closed jar. Should keep for a few weeks.
Very serious stuff!

The amounts are just guidelines. It all depends on the size of the horseradish root. Usually they're sold in lengths of about 6 inches, which is what was used for this recipe. If you make a larger batch, or if you'd like it to be a little sweeter or a little more sour, simply adjust the amounts of sugar and vinegar accordingly.
