    Hi there – anyone out there with a genuine garlic pickle recipe – need to make some as am in Spain now – and only by kind friends that are able to get it when they visit me – which is not that often.

    Many thanks

    This is a good recipe. I have made it with grated rather than chopped beetroot which gives a different texture and is great!

  4. Maxine says:

    Could anyone tell me the best place to buy fresh Horsradish as I would really like to make this.

  5. Fred Wood says:

    @Maxine: Hi Maxine, if you can grow Beetroot you can can grow Horseradish too, you can get it from seed company like King Seeds and you plant the Roots in late March and harvest this time of year.
