Prepared horseradish

Alright, friends. This right here is the key ingredient. Prepared horseradish. This is not the same thing as horseradish sauce.

Horseradish sauce is a condiment and is made with mayonnaise and other ingredients. It’s delicious on prime rib. But it doesn’t come close to packing the same punch as prepared horseradish.

Prepared horseradish is an ingredient in horseradish sauce. It’s essentially fresh grated horseradish in a liquid. I find it in the seafood department of my local grocery store. Because this is the stuff you wanna use when you make your own cocktail sauce.

If you want your next Bloody Mary to have a little more burn and bite? Add a little bit of this prepared horseradish! And some Old Bay seasoning. You’re welcome.
