Fermented Beets and Horseradish Relish

Finely grated fresh beets and horseradish is a great combination that goes well with cold meat cuts. Horseradish is a root crop, grown for the pungent roots. They contain highly volatile oils with a sharp flavor. Grind fresh horseradish in a well-ventilated room. The fumes from grinding are potent. If you use a manual grater expect to cry a lot! Beets will color your hands purple, so use gloves.
