My life is full of great experiences, made better for sharing.

When I first met Brian and Anne from Newman's Horseradish, all they could tell me about was their wine.
Which is a little strange really because you and I have been eating their Horseradish with our Sunday Roast for a lifetime. All the more confusing is that until 1985 Newmans Horseradish was grown at the site of Newman's Nursey, at Tea Tree Gully.
In 1947 Brian's father bought the Horseradish business and Brian later moved it to the deep silt floodplains of Langhorne Creek.
Horseradish and Vines - Langhorne Creek is ideal for both
Brian and Anne have expanded the range of bottled goods over the years including mustards, garlic and ginger and the delightful beetroot and horseradish relish. My favourite is the newest product in the range Newman's Horseradish Dip.
Here are some things you can do with Horseradish other than eating it with your Steak or Roast Beef:
Add a teaspoon to Scrambled Eggs Use instead of curry to make Devilled Eggs Mix with Apricot Jam and Mustard as a Glaze for Ham
Add to Mashed Potato Add to the Tomato Sauce for a Pizza base Add to Hollandaise Sauce for Eggs Benedict
When you visit the Cellar Door at Langhorne Creek, Anne or Brian have Horseradish, Rusticana Wines and local Honey on tasting. They carry a full and unusual range of other local preserved products from small-scale producers such as jams and sauces from Saucy Sue, and the unusual and delicious canned French delicacies from Franck Foods cannery at Monteith.
No, I don't have any at the moment. I suffer from reflux and unfortunately my diet is somewhat restricted. One of my other family members is not allowed anything containing gluten (wheat, barley, rye or oats) or that may have come in contact with any at all.
