Horseradish Cream


Author Notes: This simple recipe makes a zesty compliment to beef or pork dishes. I traditionally serve it with beef tenderloin at Christmas or an Easter ham. Make this up in the morning to allow ingredients to come together before dinner that evening. Leftover cream keeps well in the fridge for several days. Adjust the amount of horseradish to your liking. It gets hotter the longer it sits. I buy the prepared horseradish from the refrigerated deli section in the supermarket.Lizthechef

This is even better a day later, or after the huge dinner party and guests have gone home - finally, I'm hungry!

I need a roast beek sandwich right about now. I like the shallots and chives together in this one.
