Did you know that July is National Horseradish Month in the United States? From The Old Farmer’s Almanac for Kids, here are instructions for preparing raw horseradish so that it is ready to eat!

How Have You Been Celebrating National Horseradish Month?

How to prepare horseradish:

Buy a fresh piece of thick, fleshy, white horseradish root. Peel the root and cut it into cubes for about 1 cup. Put the horseradish cubes into a blender. Add one or two ice cubes and grind the horseradish until smooth. (Make sure that you do this in a well-ventilated room. The smell will be quite pungent.)

For mild horseradish, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of white vinegar and a few pinches of salt immediately. For hot and spicy horseradish, wait 3 minutes before adding 1 to 2 tablespoons of white vinegar and a few pinches of salt.

Once it’s ready, it’s up to you to decide how you want to celebrate National Horseradish Month—by eating this distinctive condiment on hot dogs at a barbecue or by experimenting to create something a bit more out of the ordinary!
