I have loved the flavor of horseradish on sandwiches for many years. Once you get use to the flavor, something is missing when you don't have it. I use to buy fresh, homemade horseradish from Briese, Ill. I had a friend who had family there and every time he went to visit he bought all that was on the small hometown grocery store shelf. This stuff was made in a garage by mom and pop and would take the top of your head off when you first opened the jar and had on sandwich.....oh, it was good. After we both left the workplace I found their address and they would ship it to me, via mail. The last order I received I found a note in my mailbox that I had a package to be picked up at post office. I couldn't remember ordering anything but drove to town, went in, presented the card and they said "Oh My What Did You Order"? One jar broke inside of box and rural mail carrier, couldn't breathe, eyes watered and he took package back to the post office. Well, entire crew couldn't handle the odor so the box was stashed in back corner of building waiting to be picked up!!! I started laughing and said Oh No you didn't break one of my jars of fresh horseradish.....It was so funny. Mom and Pop have retired and don't make this wonderful stuff anymore so now I buy this brand at Wal Mart. It is pretty good, but not like theirs....
Last week I picked up this brand for a supercharged HOTNESS! You better be careful of this one.... It starts in your nose and spreads through sinuses and into eyes rapidly!!!
When Solar was in high school and I packed her lunch, usually turkey sandwiches, she would sometimes have to remind me to "Lighten up on the horseradish" ha
When I first introduced it to my husband, his comment was that it was like eating battery acid, (don't know how he knew that). Then he would ask if he had to suffer through a sandwich? He has since acquired a taste for horseradish also. I'm telling you it is habit forming.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
