There are a few must have condiments for my holiday table, cranberry sauce, mustard and this homemade horseradish sauce.

If you usually by pre-made horseradish sauce from the store, you HAVE to give this homemade version a go this year. It takes minutes to make with just a few simple ingredients, and it can be made several days ahead of time.

It’s a strong condiment, with a mustard-like hit that is wonderful when served with roasted beef, or use as a spread in your favorite sandwiches.

How long does it keep?

Once you have made your horseradish sauce, cover it and keep it refrigerated. It will keep well for around a week in the fridge, depending on the freshness of your sour cream. The flavors will develop the longer you leave it, and I recommend that you leave it in the fridge for at least 4 hours before you serve it.

Do you use fresh or jarred horseradish?

You can use either in this sauce. Fresh horseradish root looks a little like ginger and can be found in the produce section of your store. If using fresh, peel the root and then grate it before mixing with the other ingredients. You can also use jarred horseradish which is usually found in the condiment aisle near the pickles.

Why make your own horseradish sauce?

This creamy horseradish sauce is so much more flavorful than store-bought, and you’ll likely have most of the ingredients to hand to make it, so it’s also kinder on your purse/wallet. It’s also really easy to adjust it to suit your exact tastes, add more or less horseradish depending on how spicy you like it.

Recipe Notes and Tips

  • This sauce is best when chilled in the fridge to allow the flavors to mend together.
  • When grating fresh horseradish, take care as it can burn your eyes, I also like to wear gloves.
  • If you have a good food processor or blender, you can use that instead of grating the horseradish by hand.
  • This recipe is easily doubled if you are serving it for a bigger feast.
