Beet Relish (Polish Chrzan)

So I finally tried the Beet Relish/Chrzan/Polish Horseradish this past weekend. Just in time for some Easter ham and it was a hit! I didn’t use the recipe that was previously posted, I actually used a recipe that has been passed down a few generations. Thanks to Carol Wojnar for sharing and also Grandma Wojnar. Since I had a few people ask me about this I wanted to share the recipe. I will put the original recipe and the spicy version (YUM!).

Beet Relish (Polish Chrzan)

Prep Time 20 mins Cook Time 10 mins Total Time 30 mins

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Grate the beets

    *(make sure these are whole, grating the sliced ones that I grabbed on accident did a number to my hands! Also wear gloves if you don’t want your hands to be stained)

  2. Mix all ingredients thoroughly and bring to a slow boil. Continue boiling for 8-10 minutes.
  3. Let cool and pack into small glass canning jars. (You can also process if you make a bunch)

This is the version I prefer

For some reason I could only find 15 oz. cans of beets and 8 oz. jars of horseradish but it worked. Everything turned out great! Don’t try to eat it when it’s hot though – the horseradish was soooooo strong…unless you like that sort of thing – hey, it did clear out my sinuses! LOL. You can use this for a condiment on just about anything! It’s super yummy with ham, polish sausage, on a sandwich etc. Enjoy!
