“July is National Horseradish Month and there’s no better time to ‘root’ around for some sizzling recipes,” says The Horseradish Information Council.

Did you know it’s also good for you? In one tablespoon of prepared horseradish, there are no calories or fat. Be sure to review the label of your favorite prepared horseradish for other nutrition information.

There are lots of recipes in the article. Enjoy!

    It has fat and calories by the time I pile it on a six inch tall reuben sandwich.

  2. hhopper says:

    Man, do I love horseradish! It really gives a sandwich zest. And it’s terrific on prime rib.

  3. Rob says:

    OK, is it just coincidence that you posted this right before lunch? Now I’m hungry for some prime rib with creamy horseradish…

    This website must be a front for some food industry association.

  4. OhForTheLoveOf says:

    As the one guy who hates horseradish, allow me to offer you my share… I’ll take the prime rib though.

  5. bobbo says:

    Easy to make your own cheap, tasty, horseradish sauce too. Keeps forever in the fridge. I like a thousand island base recipe with extra pickle and onion with horseradish.

    Make my own pepper sauce for the same reason.

  6. Mister Mustard says:

    Now there’s something we can ALL (except for OhForTheLoveOf) agree on. Mmm-mmm GOOD!!

  7. DaveW says:

    Here’s a hint:

    I love good hot horseradish, and a little can go a long way. But, once bottled prepared horseradish has been opened, it starts to mellow fairly fast.

    We discovered a solution:

    Store opened jars of horseradish in the freezer. It helps to maintain the kick. To use it, just scrape out what you want with a knife and return it jar to the freezer.

    I love horseradish. I’ll celebrate at the Russian Vodka Room here in NYC. They’ve got a lot of infused vodkas, including a really good horseradish one. Yes. I know it sounds bad. But, if you do like horseradish, it actually is very good.

  9. BubbaRay says:

    And as an extra added bonus, it’ll clean out those sinuses in a hurry! Now send over that prime rib with OFTLO’s extra horseradish!! Cheese, it’s even good fresh grated on a ballpark hot dog.

    #5, Bobbo, sounds good! See link below. 🙂

    Eideard, you live in the land of some of the best chiles. NM red chiles and horseradish combined with a few other ingredients makes a mean sauce. Pendery’s (since 1870) here in DFW imports ’em fresh or dried from NM. When is that next NM chile festival?

    If you like hot sauce or chiles, here’s a link to Pendery’s, they ship in the US:

    Adding horseradish to a Bloody Mary give it a nice zing.

  11. Ballenger says:

    er, gives it rather…

    #8, Scott,

    One of the advantages of living in a large cosmopolitan city are the truly delicious foods one may sample from around the world. One of the bigger reasons I miss Toronto.

    Here in the boonies, I can’t even find a half decent horseradish. As much as I love horseradish, I’m not going all the way to Chicago for some.

    Enjoy your infusion (I like that word) and think of me next time you have one. Think of all of us in the Mid-West hinterland.

  13. OhForTheLoveOf says:

    #12 – Dude… I’ll go to Chicago for you… and since I don’t like horseradish, you know I won’t eat it on the way back

  14. BubbaRay says:

    #12, Mr. Fusion, ever tried these guys? They ship and they’re pretty good.

    I live in the Horseradish capitol of the world. Collinsville, Illinois. Its 10 miles away from St. Louis. We have a weekend long horseradish festival to celebrate the root. Interestingly , we also have the worlds largest catsup bottle (in the form of a water tower). Damn, who knew that Collinsville was such a cool place to live! 🙂

  16. Eideard says:

    BubbaRay – the Hatch Chile Festival is pretty much always Labor Day Weekend. Truly the best way to get a lot of the small town flavor [pun intended] down in the Chile growing region.

    Folks grow about 200 varieties in and around Hatch.

    Thoughout NM, of course, you can usually buy a couple dozen varieties in just about any market or grocery store. Folks would throw rocks at a store that didn’t carry ’em.

    Nice to see someone in TX who can spell “chile” btw.

  17. BubbaRay says:

    Eideard, “you can usually buy a couple dozen varieties in just about any market or grocery store.”

    Yes, they’re all over here too, but just not as good as the ones straight from NM. You can’t make really great chile without grinding your own powder from freshly dried NM reds. Central Market in DFW gets a huge batch of reds from NM every Sept. Yay!

    Maybe I’ll go crazy this winter and try adding a touch of fresh horseradish just to see what it does. Thanks for the Hatch info!

    #8, Scott, I’d like to try that ‘radish infused vodka. Unless you have an asbestos tongue, stay away from the Habenero vodka ❗

  18. Misanthropic Scott says:

    #17 – BubbaRay,

    Sure, take a trip to NYC. Let me know when you’re coming. As for the habernaro, I like spicy, but not THAT spicy. I haven’t seen anyone make that vodka infusion yet. They have a garlic and dill … tastes like drinking pickle juice. Most of the rest of their infusions are sweet, various berries, apple, pear, etc.

  19. Misanthropic Scott says:

    #12 – Mr. Fusion,

    Thanks for another excuse to go to the RVR. Will do. It sounds like you need to move. Consider NYC. If you can get past the real estate sticker shock, it’s a great place to live. We’ve got all the advantages of living in one of the world’s great cities and a lot of good natural areas nearby for day or longer trips.

  20. venom monger says:

    I love horseradish.

    Nobody mentioned my favorite version, though… wasabe.


    Tuna roll with sliced ginger and a huge blob of wasabe. That’s some fine eatin’.

  21. BubbaRay says:

    #20, venom monger, We’ll all get some of Scott’s horseradish infused vodka for a deluxe martini and some of your fine ahi tuna sashimi with great wasabe! Brings a tear to me eye. Literally. 🙂

  22. Jim says:

    Takeru Kobayashi, the six-time defending Nathan’s hot dog eating champion, could be out of competition next week because of an ailment—an aching jaw.

    So I thought, how about a horseradish eating contest. A horseradish race. Less chewing.

  23. Misanthropic Scott says:

    #22 – Jim,

    Horseradish eating contest … interesting. And, for dessert, a halvah eating contest.
