What is horseradish?

Horseradish is the root of the horseradish plant. Which is a member of the brassica family. (Brussels sprouts, radishes, broccoli, kale) If you think about it all of those can have a little spicy, peppery bite.

Horseradish root is readily grown in temperate climates. It’s hardy in zones 3-9, which is much of the US and Canada. It can become invasive though, so it is best to contain it.

It spreads by the roots so plant it contained in pots. (We actually buried an old kiddie pool that had holes drilled in it for drainage, so that we could have a small patch.)

    What a great idea – I always like to make my own condiments when I can rather than getting shop-bought jars. This looks delicious!
