OT, with streaming eyes: horseradish

Discussion in 'UK Motorcycles' started by The Older Gentleman, Dec 10, 2006.

  1. Little Bruvver gave The Doctor a horseradish root, with a warning not to
    let it escape from its pot, because it has delusions of grandeur and
    tries to take over a garden. Or something.

    So she did, and it did.

    We've been digging up horseradish root, washing it, grating it, and
    making horseradish sauce.

    Holy ****, this stuff is strong. I leaned over the food processor,
    inhaled, and my nostrils sent a message to the brain that I was snorting
    napalm. I reeled backwards and bumped into the cats, who were already
    retreating, sneezing violently.

    Seems the plant is indeed bent on world domination, or at least
    domination of our little corner of Surrey. Anyone want some?

    Yes please, if only to taunt my 13yr old who hates the stuff almost as
    much as I love it.

    If its that strong is it any good at cleaning up old alloy parts. If it
    is can I have a kilo to clean up the "snowflake" wheels on the old
    Alternatively can we flog it as a potential wmd.

    They do.
    One of Canvey Island's three[1] claims to fame is a form of wild
    horseradish that grows in the dykes close to the southern sea wall.
    Renowned locally for it's hotness when fresh, I doubt they dig it today
    like they used to. Although I dare say the ministry wouldn't take too
    kindly to hordes of folks descending on them and digging up the sea
    defences so thewre is a good reason for you.

    If that is the case I can only encourage them to make haste to Canvey
    Island and dig.

    [1] A variety of mossie all it's own which is said to be related to the
    one what carries malaria. Just the thing in these days of global
    warming to have only 10 miles up the road innit? Downwind though which
    is nice. And it survived the '53 floods.

    supermarket that has them, so have had them loads recently, usually
    roasted or made into soup.
