Horseradish sauce with currants is even better.

Horseradish has a naturally spicy taste. However, under certain circumstances it can turn into an inedible bitter raw material. Therefore, there is one important tip to remember when cooking horseradish sauce. Never boil the horseradish, but add it to the sauce at the end. Not only will it retain maximum nutrients, but it would otherwise turn bitter due to the heat.

Before cooking the fresh horseradish, it is better to grind it a little and taste it to see if it is bitter. Its bitterness can also be the result of poor storage.

You can add cream to soften it, ideally whipping cream. It not only softens the sauce, but also thickens it, and in addition, it is paradoxically more durable than cooking cream. In the case of cream for cooking, we have to be careful not to boil it for a short time. She doesn’t like long cooking because it curdles after a long time.

Are you wondering what other recipes to use horseradish in? Try, for example , healthy pickled cabbage or canned beetroot .
