Yield: 3 cups
Place the ketchup in good-sized mixing bowl.
Shave or grate a half-cup of celery, and then squeeze all the water out of it.
Squeeze in the juice of 1 and a half lemons – careful to catch the seeds.
Grate in a half-cup of fresh horseradish.
Add in a half up of prepared horseradish. The vinegar in the prepared stuff adds an extra tang.
Add 2 Tbsp of Worchester Sauce, 1 Tbsp of Tabasco, 2 pinches of coarse salt, and 1 Tbsp of ground pepper.
We add an ounce of cognac or brandy, but you can leave it out if you want.
