Horseradish has nothing to do with horses and it is not a radish but it is a plant in the mustard family and is related to wasabi, broccoli, and cabbage. Also called Mountain Radish and Red Cole, it has highly volatile oils that are responsible for its hot, spicy and pungent taste and its strong aroma. This piquant and very mustard-like flavor will liven up and increase the heat of nearly any savory recipe.
When served hot, horseradish loses its pungency and is quite mild so keep it cold to keep it hot. Because of that, the powdered root is commonly used to add zing to dips, sauces, and spreads that do not require cooking. It is a very popular condiment served with pork or beef.
Horseradish is a gastric stimulant making it good to serve with rich or fatty indigestible foods. Richer in vitamin C than orange or lemon, the nutrients in horseradish can support stimulant, diuretic, and antiseptic health benefits. Because of these properties, the horseradish root has been connected with supporting the urinary tract against infections and overall health and wellbeing.
