Horseradish vodka

Here's a nice idea for a different use of some horseradish you have grown.Take a piece around 6 cm and wash and scrub this (no need to peel it) and then cut the horseradish into half cm roundels. Steep the roundels in say, 500 ml of vodka for 3 days and then strain. Horseradish vodka is an Eastern European folk drink. You can add a little honey (or sugar) if you prefer to make this into a liqueur but chilled (in your freezer or stored outdoors if the winter is like here (upstate NY) VERY cold, this is a wonderful drink. If you allow this to age for a few months the drink becomes even more smooth. If you find that after even 3 days this is too "hot" you can add more vodka to dilute the heat or next time you might allow the root to steep for 2 days...
