Polish horseradish with beets! Posted by Kasia on Feb 25, 2012 in cooking, Countries, food, Holidays
Everyone knows that Poles love beets (buraki) and horseradish (chrzan)! Put these two together and everything gets even better…:)
It is great as a dipping “sauce”. A lot of times I use it on a sandwich as well.Yum!!!
This great mixture is usually called “ćwikła“. It is really easy to make:
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon brown sugar
2 cups homemade or purchased horseradish
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 pound beets, cooked, peeled, cooled and grated or 1 (14-ounce) can prepared beets, drained and grated
In a large bowl, mix together vinegar, brown sugar, horseradish and salt until well combined.
Add beets and mix thoroughly.
Pack into clean sterilized jars and store refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
Definitely try it! It is such a typical Polish condiment, served with roast or any kind of smoked meat, sausage or different cold cuts. It is a must on the holiday table, regardless if it’s Christmas or Easter.
Do następnego razu… (Till next time…)
