    Does the 1/2 T horseradish refer to grated horseradish root or prepared horseradish (in a jar with vinegar)?

      Britany – Either will work!

    you can make your own cocktail sauce with low sugar ketsup and hot horseradish. add some Old Bay to it to give some more flavors. and even a little lemon juice.
