This makes a mild sauce; if you would like something that will really clear the sinuses, just increase the quantity of grated horseradish!


  • tablespoons grated horseradish
  • 2 teaspoons wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • a pinch of freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 120 ml cream, softly whipped


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.
