I spent most of the day working outside in rain, sleet, wind and cold. Not surprisingly, by late afternoon I found myself thinking of warming food. I looked down and realised I was right next to the horseradish bed. Excellent. I dug up a large handful of roots to be processed and bottled. I’ll set some aside to make a horseradish sauce tomorrow, which I’ll spread over slices of boiled pork for dinner. I may also stir a spoonful or two into mashed potato, making a truly warming meal. We may not be able to grow chillies this far north, but who needs them when horseradish is to hand?
