Red Horseradish

I can't really explain why I haven't made red horseradish until this year.....yet another of those "14 years later....." mysteries. Multitasking as I do, I throw some beets into a pot of boiling water as I melt chocolate in a bowl on top. Then, reading a recipe about red horseradish, I see the beets are grated raw. Makes sense if I think about it but I'm pushing the thinking limits. It is time to over.

Anyway, the red horseradish is sweeter than the straight up white variety. Just as easy to make, although more messy with all the red, just toss in raw beets and grind with the horseradish. Add remaining ingredients and that's it. Very beautiful with gefilte fish and much better than the jarred.
