How to go about harvesting horseradish. So my wife had picked a roast from a local farm, we still had some onions and carrots left over in the pantry so we decided to make a pot roast for supper, well what goes well with pot roast? Horseradish of course!

So I went out into the yard to find some horseradish.

my dog helped me find it and with clearing away the snow

the ground was still little frozen, but we chipped away the soil

Image

and cut a piece of root off, once the soil thaws out more I will dig the rest of that up

looks like a alien

so I peeled it and cleaned it up

Image

and grated it up

Image

I grabbed some vinegar

Image

and mixed some of it in

Image

Dinner was ready

it was outstanding

If you love horseradish like I do, plant some,  be careful though, it can be invasive, you need to make sure you are harvesting and cutting it back, this could easily be canned for the fridge and will last several months in there.
