This is Uncle Irving's recipe for red horseradish. To make white
horseradish, omit the beets. If you've never made horseradish
before, be careful when you open the food processor. The freshly
ground radish is very potent.
Uncle Irving's Horseradish
1 pound horseradish
2 large beets
1 tablespoon sugar
1 to 2 tablespoons Kosher salt [We used 2]
2/3 cup white vinegar
1/3 cup water
Cut the horseradish into chunks. Cut the beets into chunks.
In the food processor, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally,
process the horseradish, sugar, salt, vinegar, and water until the
mixture is finely chopped.
Add the beets, continuing to process, until the beets are finely
chopped and you achieve the color you want. We did not add 2 full
beets. Somewhere around 1 1/4 beets the color was a beautiful red
and we stopped.
