From the Family Archives: Making Horseradish

I have been sorting through some family photos and found this one of my grandparents and great grandparents making horseradish in Cactus Lake Saskatchewan. I think it's from the early 1950's and my grandma May has written, "Making horseradish, a forgotten and tear enduring task." I guess making it outside makes it less tear inducing. I have a soft spot for that old white picket fence and the Virginia Creeper climbing over the arch. It's long-since been replaced by a caragana hedge.

Decomeber 8, 2013 has been declared Terra Madre "Slow Food, Slow Everything" Day. Maybe we should celebrate by making horseradish in the streets!
