Sunday Roast 2: Horseradish Sauce

I am not a big fan of horseradish sauce: too bland yet too hot for such a non exciting flavour. But I religiously follow Nigella Lawson, so, if she makes horseradish sauce, I will make it too…
The taste was good, very different from the commercial one, but I couldn’t say I will eat it for ever and ever… I liked it, nonetheless I didn’t eat as much as my husband… But he is a well known big big big eater: you know, he’s French, he’s strange!!! ;-))
The inspiration for this recipe comes from Feast, by Nigella Lawson.

Make 250 ml

300 g of fresh horseradish
300 ml of double cream
2 teaspoons of Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
1 apple (more id the horseradish is insanely hot)

Peel the horseradish and the apple and cut it into chunks. Blend together all ingredients in a food processor until you obtain a creamy texture. Spoon it in serving bowls and refrigerate until lunch.

    OOOOOhhhhhh, you know I have an insane passione for horseradish sauce but never actually made it???? By the way, if you have suggestions on how to eat it, I’ll be glad to read those as well! (i ussually spread some in my ham sandwiches but that’s more or less the only use I have for it)

    @Cenzina: that’s what I normally do! At most I eat with meat… If you put more apples you can try it with pork too…
    So Nigella says…
