Horseradish and Beets Relish Recipe

Yuriy calls this relish, made of horseradish and beets, Ukrainian wasabi: it is sharp and flavorful and goes great with meat dishes, sausages, jellied meat.

In Ukraine it is often served on Christmas and New Year.

Fresh horseradish can be tricky to handle – vapors may irritate nose and eyes, especially when chopped. That is why using blender or food processor is the best choice here.

This is really a Fabulous Condiment. Great with Ham, Hard Boiled Eggs, and other Ukrainian dishes like Headcheese.Hoowever i think it bettter to grate the Beets rather than blend them to a mush.Great foods also have some texture as well as apperance and of course taste.A grated beet relish is more satisfying than a soupy mess.
