“Never Again Blocked Sinuses ” Horse Radish – Pickled/Canned 

Today I didn’t get any crafts done 😕.  I was way too busy in the kitchen, that and my current project is time consuming. I will try to update on that tomorrow!

Today I made a batch of “Never Again Blocked Sinuses ” Horse Radish! Boy was it potent smelling! 😭


Yesterday, a friend sent home some fresh horse radish with Chris and a little bouquet of flowers for me.  Thank you Wanda!

Here are my flowers! Aren’t they beautiful!

Chris helped me plant one of the horse radish plants and I saved the rest to can.

I have to say that this horse radish was very pungent.  I swear that I went through a half box of Kleenex and that my sinuses will never be blocked again lol. But I did it.

I ended up making 9 125ml jars of horse radish for our Christmas preserve baskets!

Below I will give you the steps I used if you too would like never again blocked sinuses lol!


Here is what the horse radish looked like after I chopped the leaves off.

I then washed;, peeled and washed them again.  I was starting to feel the effects of how strong it is at this point.

Next I brought out my food processor and started to grate the horse radish.  This is when my eyes started to burn and water and I had to keep taking breaks 😕.  I ended up with just shy of 7 cups.

I put 1 3/4 cups of vinegar,  1 cup of sugar and 1 Tbsp.  Salt in a big pot.  I also started to boil the water in my big canning pot.

I brought the vinegar mixture to a full boil,  making sure that the salt and sugar were fully disolved and then added the horse radish.  ( I forgot to take a picture of the mixture in the pot. By that time my eyes were so red and runny and my head was pounding, I just wanted it done lol).

I brought the mixture back to a full boil and then ladled it into my little jars.

I processed them in the hot “bath” for 10 minutes and pulled them out to cool.

And now I have some nice sinus clearing horse radish for our baskets!
