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.
