Happy Passover from EyeCandyTO (see recipe)

May this holiday season bring you renewal and hope. Happy Passover from EyeCandyTO!

Make your own Beet & Horseradish Condiment – Chrein – for your Passover Seder (see recipe below)


Chrein – Beet & Horseradish Condiment Recipe

Yield: 2 1/2 cups


4 each Medium beets, peel & grated

3 Tbsp Horseradish root, freshly grated (adjust amount depending on spiciness)

1 tsp Kosher salt

2 Tbsp Red wine vinegar (or cider or white)

4 Tbsp Sugar

Enough water to slightly cover the grated beets


  1. Peel, wash and grate the beets.  Put them in a pot and add enough water to slightly cover them.  Do not put too much water or the product will be too wet.  Cook until very tender.  Between 20-30 minutes, but check as times may vary.
  2. While hot, add the vinegar salt and sugar and mix well until everything is dissolved.
  3. Add the grated horseradish.  Place in a bowl and let cool for a few minutes. Place in the refrigerator, covered, for 2-3 hours.  Adjust seasoning before serving.


  • Adjust ingredientes to your personal preferences.  Add more or less sugar to adjust sweetness.  More or less vinegar to adjust acidity.  And more or less horseradish to adjust potency & spiciness.
  • Beets can be puréed instead of grated for a smoother consistency.  Do this after you cook the beets, and dice them to cook instead of grating.
