Often relegated to being a condiment on savory foods and meats, Horseradish is more than a flavorful topping. Though he is native to Europe and Asia, the settlers of North America brought him over and introduced him to the Native Americans who used him for food and medicine. Medicinal use of Horseradish dates back to the Egyptians and today still makes a very powerful medicine. Having twice the vitamin C of oranges and 10 times as much cancer fighting power as Broccoli, Horseradish is definitely an herb to have in your kitchen! In this month’s issue, we’ll explore some of Horseradish’s uses and learn how to make our own from freshly grated roots.
