Make other condiments jealous with this peppery sauce. It packs the perfect kicked-up punch when it's made from scratch.

  • 3/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp salt


  • WHIRL horseradish with vinegar, sugar and salt in a food processor until finely chopped but not puréed, 30 sec to 1 min. (Tip: Be careful removing the lid; try not to inhale the strong aroma.) Scrape into a 500-mL jar and refrigerate up to 1 month.
