Walking down Essex Street last Sunday I noticed a big crowd at The Pickle Guys. This is the pickle go to place on the Lower East Side. In addition to making a wide variety of kosher pickles they also make holiday horseradish for Passover. Fresh horseradish has way more of a bite then the stuff you get in jars, but it never occurred to me that when making it in bulk you’d need to wear a gas mask 😉 Neil is traveling this year so for the first time in 28 years we are not doing passover.
I have to say that as much as I enjoying making passover lasagna for the Seder I don’t miss all the cleaning and tin foil and plastic bag covered cupboards. Seeing the fresh horseradish didn’t actually give me a ting of regret that we weren’t celebrating this year and that I had no reason to buy a big jar of horseradish (I have 2 bottles in the fridge already and, lets face it, there is only so many Bloody Mary’s I can drink!)
