I've been making a variation of this for years. My recipe calls for 1/4 cup of dry mustard and only 5 oz. of horseradish and it has quite a bite so I wouldn't use the 8 oz. of horseradish called for in this recipe unless you want it VERY hot. Update: Try this as a sauce with pork tenderloin or roasted chicken.

I served this at a party and the reviews were mixed-I liked it personally.

This is definetly different! I will make again, but with theses changes. First off cut this recipe in 1/2! I mixed it in with the cream cheese (as opposed to drizzling over) and started with 2oz of horseradish, I also added minced sweet red peppers for texture and color. I made it the night before to let all the flavors come together and served with tortilla chips, all of my guests raved about this and it was gone in a hour. I think next time I will add a tbsp of strawberry preserves for a different flavor. Enjoy!

My husband was nervous about me making this for our party. Ended up being his favorite thing! I eased up on the horseradish a bit - Excellent! It's a keeper!!!

This is, most often, a happy suprise to anyone who tries it! Pineapple preserves are hard to find, but I took the suggestion of other reviewers, and used pineapple ice cream topping. However, I did find that the topping was more liquid than most preserves, and adjusted accordingly.

Ooh, this is hot. If you think that the fruit spreads will mask the horseradish, I have a bridge you might be interested in buying. I'm not particularly fond of horseradish, but my Dad is, and he looves this, especially with the cream cheese. This recipe also makes an incredible amount, filling a 28 ounce spaghetti sauce jar to the top. Easy storage! This might stick around till next Christmas....

I served this at a Thanksgiving gathering and everyone raved over it. I absolutely love this recipe. It is SO simple to prepare. I found all of the ingredients with no problem at my local Kroger. VERY easy and VERY delicious. Awesome!

This is tasty stuff. A local deli here in Charlotte (NC) serves this on their "Turkey Jezebel" sandwich-- mmmm! Very good as a spread with turkey, swiss or provolone, on some good deli bread. Definitely a little strange, but highly recommended!
