Horseradish is a plant in the mustard family, which makes it related to wasabi, broccoli and cabbage. Like its cousins, the plant has a reputation for possessing a strong flavor and aroma.

This herb is harvested for its root, which releases enzymes when cut that is certain to clear your sinuses and make your eyes water! The powdered root makes it easy to add zing to sauces, spreads and other foods and has the added benefit of having a long shelf life.

what else you should know


Horseradish is a member of the mustard family and is thought to be original to Asia and eastern Europe. Just as with horse chestnut, the common name is a misnomer since the herb is toxic to horses.

People, on the other hand, enjoy the hot tang the fresh or dried root lends to cooking. Horseradish is commonly mixed with mayonnaise, crème fraiche or sour cream to make dips and sauces, or is added to soups and stews. In Eastern and Central Europe, where the herb is known as khren (or kren), horseradish sauce or cream is a popular condiment served with pork or beef.

Background: Horseradish is probably best known as a spicy addition to food. 

Horseradish is in the same family as mustard. That's not surprising when you consider the strong flavor it can lend to food.

Description: Horseradish is a perennial plant that grows up to 2 feet high. It has roots that are very deep and large leaves with white flowers. It is grown primarily in Asia and Europe. The root that's used for herbal medicine is harvested in the fall.

Safety: You should not take horseradish internally unless supervised by a health professional. Too much horseradish can cause stomach and intestinal irritation. Do not use horseradish if you have an under active thyroid. A horseradish poultice may cause blisters to form on the skin. Consult your health care provider before beginning use of any herb.
