The Profile


Horseradish is a root vegetable known for it’s stout bite. It adds wonderful depth to sauces, dressings & marinades by offering a distinctive fiery-hot presence. Needless to say, a little horseradish goes a long way. This perennial crop is a member of the Brassicaceae family falling in line with other mustards. Horseradish does offer nutritional benefits such as calcium, magnesium & potassium but the affects are minimal since it’s consumed in such small amounts due to it’s pungent taste. Horseradish has also long been used to treat a variety of medical conditions as well. Learn how to prepare & use this root vegetable in several cooking applications.

How To Prepare & Use Horseradish

Fresh horseradish is harvested in the spring & in the fall. It has a slightly knobby appearance & it’s firm in texture. If you cannot locate fresh, look for prepared horseradish in jars which is generally held in a vinegar & salt solution under refrigeration that is ready to stir into recipes such as Horseradish Deviled Eggs & Classic Horseradish Sauce.

Place a damp kitchen towel under a clean cutting board. This will keep the board stable & prevent it from moving when in use. Rinse the exterior of the horseradish root under cool running water. Use a vegetable peeler to remove the outer skin. Hold a microplane grater at a 45 degree angle over the work surface, then run the horseradish down the tool to create a fine, small size that is ideal for use in condiments & the like.
