Horseradish Harvest

Horseradish roots

Horseradish roots after a couple hours of washing.

It is fortunate that Easter is late this year, because with the lingering cold weather, I would never have gotten the Horseradish out of the ground if Easter had been much earlier. I did the digging on Holy Thursday and the weather was around 60 which made the digging and washing a little easier.

We did the grinding and bottling on Holy Saturday and again the weather was warm and fair so I was able to do the whole process on the deck which is definitely easier on the sinuses and the eyes.
