Horseradish and apple sauce is an Austrian sauce (Apfelkren). It makes a change from the standard horseradish cream. It goes well with beef, with sausages and smoked meats, and with trout andsmoked eel. Use more cream for a milder sauce, or add a couple of fresh bread crumbs to the mixture.
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1⁄2 cup grated fresh horseradish
- 1 large tart apple
- salt and sugar to taste
- 1⁄2 cup whipping cream
Directions: stir 1 tbsp lemon juice into the horseradish so that it doesn’t discolor. Peel, core, and grate the apple, and stir it into the horseradish with the remaining lemon juice. Season with a little sugar and salt, and let stand for 15 minutes. Whip the cream lightly and fold it into the horseradish mixture.
