How to Grate Fresh Horseradish Root

We’re making a fabulous prime rib in a few days, and I wanted to make sure we had yummy horseradish to go with it.  I went to Whole Foods and bought a small root, it was about .80!  Here’s what I did to grate it up:

Grate Fresh Horseradish Root


  • horseradish root
  • water
  • white vinegar
  • salt pepper


  1. Peel root. I only peeled about half, and put the rest away for another time.
  2. I then chopped in small pieces and placed in a small food processor with a few tablespoons of water.
  3. I held on tight and pressed the "grate" button. The processor jumped around but made pretty quick work of the job. If it doesn't want to grate - put in a bit more water.
  4. After it has finished processing, open the lid, don't breathe too deeply as it's VERY strong, and let it rest for a few seconds.
  5. Depending how strong you want the horseradish to be, place in 1 Tbs vinegar right away (not as hot) or let it sit a few minutes, then mix in the vinegar. The longer you wait, the stronger it will be.
  6. This smells FABULOUS!
