Horseradish root looks very much like a scruffy, gnarled parsnip root, with the occasional protuberance. Above ground, Horseradish leaves can vary in size up to ten inches across, depending on the variety. The leaves are edible when young. The plant is primarily cultivated for its root. The white colored meat of fresh Horseradish has a distinct bite similar to that of prepared Horseradish but with a crisp, sweet flavor to it as well. The hot and pungent flavor of Horseradish is absent until the root is crushed or ground. The addition of vinegar to the crushed root neutralizes the reaction and seals in the unique taste and heat Horseradish is known for.
Horseradish is available year-round with peak seasons in the late fall and early spring.
Horseradish root, scientifically known as Amoracia rusticana, is a member of the mustard family. Like other pungent roots, Horseradish is used primarily as a flavoring and spice. Many varieties of Horseradish exist; however the most common is Maliner Kren, a variety with Czechoslovakian heritage.
Horseradish is low in fat and calories and high in vitamin C and dietary fiber. As a medicinal root, Horseradish has been used to treat aliments such as arthritis and kidney stones, to soothe indigestion, to treat sinus infections and coughs, and as an aphrodisiac.
Horseradish adds a kick to spreads such as mayonnaise, and can be added to glazes and fruit sauces for savory dishes. It compliments grilled meats and seafood, and pairs well with roasted root vegetables and mashed potatoes. To explore the different uses for fresh Horseradish, keep a fresh, peeled root in the refrigerator and grate over dishes like black pepper. When cooking with Horseradish be sure to add it towards the end as prolonged heat from cooking can dull its flavor. To store, keep unpeeled Horseradish root in the refrigerator, wrapped in a damp paper towel for up to a week.
Horseradish is one of the five bitter herbs used on a traditional Seder plate for the Jewish Passover. The root has long been used as a condiment for meats in Germany and England.
Horseradish has been valued for its medicinal and culinary qualities since the time of the ancient Greeks and Egyptians. Native to Eastern Europe, Horseradish arrived in America in the mid 1800’s courtesy of early settlers in the northeast. Today Horseradish is grown commonly in both the United States and Europe. In the United States, Collinsville, Illinois is the major producer of commercial horseradish and home to the annual International Horseradish Festival.
