Horseradish dipping sauce

I guess this is a Condement on the side for beef roast?

Is it really just..

Sour Cream
Prepared Horseradish
salt and spice
(spice could be Dill for fish, maybe parsly for beef?)

some recipes call for Mustard Powder?

I also saw one with Crumbled Blue Chese?
that sounds really good for blue chese lovers!

Thanks, Eric, Austin Tx.

I think you can get pretty much all the way there with just prepared horseradish plus sour cream. I would call that the basic recipe for the horseradish condiment served with beef roasts in restaurants.

It's funny, the restaurant always brings the diluted stuff and I have to request the pure stuff.

I prefer the pure stuff but the idea of mixing with blue cheese and a little sour cream sound good.Maybe a little chive or shallot too.

I keep looking for roots so I can plant horseradish...that way, I could have the pure stuff. Which reminds me, where are my seed "Wish Books" for 2012?

Made my own horseradish not long ago. Turned out great! Hotter than most of the hot store brands. One note, 1 lb of root goes a long way. I will have horse radish for the next decade!

Did you add any additional ingredients or did you just blend it?

I suspect a horseradish root would last a long time in the refrigerator. Perhaps cut off and discard part of the old end before reusing.

Horseradish in the garden is very invasive. If I do find a fresh root (organic market is where I'll look this spring), it will either be planted off in a corner by the barn or in a container buried in the ground.

do you find that horseradish loses its heat over time when it sits in the frigerator?
I like mine pretty hot, but don't use it very often/ or often enough, so I wind up getting a new jar before the last one is empty.

No roast beef today? It's good mixed with a little sour cream and put on a baked potato.

Can you freeze unused horseradish root like ginger?

Yes, I'm pretty sure it does lose strength when it sits in your refrigerator over time. I just got down to the bottom of my horseradish a few days ago and it did not satisfy at all.

I suggest not keeping prepared horseradish for more than a year, and even that may be overly long.
