  1. I’m going to try this amazing recipe. I love the layout of the page and it’s so easy to follow in clear precise instructions I’ve fallen in love with the picture! My husband absolutely loves horse radish and will have to try it out on him as he loves potatoes as well. 

    1. Please let me know how he likes it!  The potatoes mute the horseradish so the flavor is milder than it would be if served with meat, for example, so feel free to adjust the amount you use to suit his individual taste.

  2. Hey Cynthia

    Thank you for the recipe I should say the potatoes look yummy. Maybe my mistake is reading this while hungry.Lol

    Truly speaking I needed to check with google what is Horseradish, I have never heard of it before. We sure never stop learning. I have noted this recipe and will be looking for more because I now understand the benefits of horseradish in our bodies/

    1. Horseradish is a root used as a complement in certain dishes, in a similar vein as ginger is used.  It has a hot, spicy and peppery flavor which is experienced through the nose and sinuses (as opposed to hot peppers, which are felt in the mouth).  For ease of use, most people will buy this already “prepared”, that is brined in vinegar and salt, at a supermarket or local farm. Horseradish root is commonly thought to have medicinal uses, such as combating urinary tract infections, kidney stones, fluid retention, infections of the respiratory tract, cough, achy joints (rheumatism), gallbladder disorders, sciatic nerve pain, gout, colic, and intestinal worms in children.
