Add a Spicy Kick of Flavor
The horseradish root is a member of the mustard family that has been cultivated throughout Europe for thousands of years for both its culinary and medicinal properties. In the 1800s, European settlers brought horseradish to North America. The root has a radish-like flavor accompanied by pungent heat that disperses quickly. The heat of horseradish is different than that of chili peppers, as it affects the nose and sinuses rather than the tongue and throat. Horseradish pairs well with beets, peas, and broccoli.
Horseradish contains sinigrin, which has been shown to support a healthy inflammation response. It’s also rich in antioxidants that support cellular health.(1)
Use dried horseradish to add spice to savory applications, such as seasoning blends, instant potato side dishes, cheese, potato chips, seaweed snacks, beef jerky, table sauces, and herbal supplements.
