It really is just the 5 ingredients!
Aim to fill the jar completely.
Alcohol should cover all ingredients thoroughly.
Flavor profiles will be up to you but the more root the more bitter, the more citrus the more tangy, the more pine the more astringent.

1 part grated organic horseradish root
1 part crushed organic garlic
1 part chopped organic onion
½ part grated organic ginger rhizome
Dash of Cayenne pepper
Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
Glass jar with non-metallic lid or wax paper lined canning lid
Grate or finely chop the horseradish root and ginger rhizome. Chop the onion and garlic. Put in a glass jar with a tight fitting lid (vinegar reacts with metal so make sure if you use a canning jar that there is wax paper between the lid and the liquid).
Shake it up and give it a taste. Add cayenne peppers or powder to taste,
Let sit in a dark cool area for 4 weeks. Strain through a fine mesh strainer lined with cheesecloth or muslin and bottle for use!
