This makes a mild Horseradish Sauce; if you would like something that will really clear the sinuses, just increase the quantity of grated horseradish!
Scrub the horseradish root well, peel and grate. Put the grated horseradish into a bowl with the vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, salt, freshly ground pepper and sugar. Fold in the softly whipped cream; do not over-mix or the sauce will curdle.
This sauce keeps for 2–3 days and may also be served with roast beef; cover so that it doesn’t pick up flavours in the fridge.
