When picked up my veg from the local organic farm earlier today, there was a box of horseradish from which we were invited to help ourselves. So, now I am on the hunt for recipes.
My trusted book of preserves only gives directions for drying the root but what would I do with it dried? Will it be as good to make horseradish sauce at a later day?
I had at an undefined point in the past considered planting horseradish in the back garden. However, the note with the box today said not to plant as it was a spreader. And I’ve already got plenty of those.
Notwithstanding the warning, I cannot imagine that horseradish can be any worse than Jerusalem artichokes and I managed to eradicate those without fuss. In other words, I am tempted to experiment and I will within a couple of months have a spot for it.
On a completely different note, I took a friend on a walk round Towton Battlefield this afternoon. The weather was reasonably warm and sunny – and whilst we still had light till teatime, I took a shot that won’t be possible at that time for about four months.
