Fresh Horseradish Root from Real Foods. Horseradish is a member of the mustard family, along with turnips and kale. The easiest way to use horseradish is to cut off the brown peel and grate some fresh horseradish as a flavouring for hearty soups or stews. Shred as close to serving time as possible, since horseradish turns bitter and discolours within a few hours.
Great on mashed potatoes or make horseradish cream by using 2 tablespoons of grated fresh horseradish to half a cup of sour cream or crème Fraiche, season and stir into a thick consistency and you’ve a delicious accompaniment to soups, stews and even pancakes.
