One of the neat things about living a foreign country is getting to experience the different holidays and the traditions that go with them. With Easter being not long ago meant cooking the typical Easter dinner. I always add a some sort of typical food from the country we live in the menu. So for this dinner I tried my hand at making “Cwikla Latwa.” We love pickled beets here in our house as I grew up eating them and making them, so they are a staple in our house. Then when I found out horseradish is added, I knew I had to try it. My father growing up loaded his ham with horseradish and I a not as much as a fan as he is. He always says it is good horseradish if it burns your nose hairs.
There are several different recipes out there to make this but I found this one in one of my Polish cookbooks and when I saw the word “EASY,” I was all over it.
It tasted perfect on top of the ham. It was even better after it sat in the refrigerator for a few days on my leftover ham sandwiches!
This relish was easy and tasted delicious. So next time you make ham, you really need to make this!
Are you a horseradish fan?
