We used to have horse radish. It was terribe torture to fix. we only had a hand grinder, It was very hard on the eyes as we would grind the horseradish our eyes wourld really burn.

What makes my horseradish bitter sometimes?

I dig mine only after the first frost. I`ve never had bitter horseradish.
