 Homemade Horseradish Pickles

As I stated before I am a pickle puss, I love horseradish pickles, especially homemade horseradish pickles. I was at Whole Foods and was shocked what a bottle of horseradish pickles cost. I bought a horseradish root from our local supermarket and was excited to use it in this recipe. My mom use to grow horseradish as a perennial so I am very familiar with this herb.

Adding the teabag has to do with tanins, this keeps the pickles crunchy. I do not know the science behind this, just what my mom has taught me.  Of course the star of the show is the horseradish root itself.  This gives your nostrils a punch, if you know what I mean.
