Horseradish Applesauce

Makes (4) 1 cup servings

Fresh horseradish, grated just before using, is essential to this dish; bottled versions won’t give the sauce its’ assertive heat. Homemade applesauce is most effective for this recipe, though good prepared applesauce will do as well.



6”-8” piece of small horseradish root

4 cups applesauce



Peel horseradish root. Place applesauce in a large bowl. Grate 2 tablespoons horseradish into applesauce and mix well. Taste, add more horseradish if desired, then serve. (It is best to eat this dish soon after it is made, before the horseradish flavor weakens.)

Once again, trust me when I say that everyone will beg you for this recipe! It sounds bizarre, but it will be on your top 10 most delicious foods you have ever eaten.
