Horseradish gets a tough rap in some circles. With its strong scent and taste, this kickin' little root is sometimes better associated with sinus clearing than tasty treats. A lot of us think of it as a bitter herb, then never think of it again.

The problem is all in presentation! If you've been forced to eat it pure with a forkful of roast beef and thought it was too strong, you may have been tempted to write off a wide world of horseradish delicacies.

And a wide world is what we've got! If you're hesitant to dive right in, we've got some fantastic treats whose showcase of horseradish along with other flavors just might convert you!

Our Kickin' Tomato Horseradish Dip has a smooth bite with a cool aftertaste, meaning you can savor the flavor without rushing for a glass of water. It's on our most requested list for a reason!

Dicks Perky Pickles score a cool 1 out of 5 chilies on our special hotness ranking system. The horseradish gives the pickle chunks a great lift! Buy them by the gallon!

Horseradish and Wisconsin White Cheddar pair terrifically together for a zippy flavor that is not overpowering (but does register a 4 out of 5 chilies, so proceed with caution) in our Horseradish Cheese Spread. We also have a Horseradish Cheese Block that clocks in at 3 out of 5 chilies for more sensitive taste buds.

If you're a full-on fan of horseradish, do not be deterred! We're sure you'll love these celebrations of your flavor of choice. And just for you, we have Super Hot Horseradish, Rocket Radish (Three times hotter!!) and the Horseradish Heaven basket to help you attain all your horseradish hopes and dreams.

The NRA (no, silly, the National Restaurant Association!) recently identified the food trends to watch in 2015, which were gleaned from a survey of 1,300 professional chefs. Pickles were high on the list and dubbed the “Throwback Thursday of food trends.”

Throwback? Yeah… waaay back. Pickles have been around since the Mesopotamians discovered the pickling method in 2400 B.C.E. The average American eats 8.5 pickles a year, with dill being twice as popular as sweet pickles. Many cultures value pickles and pickle juice as a cure for headaches, hangovers, cramps and heartburn.

But sadly, pickles have sometimes been treated like a joke.

What’s sour and green and floats in an aquarium?

A trop-pickle fish.


Obviously, it’s time to give the pickle its due—1,300 chefs can’t be wrong!

When you’re getting ready to entertain guests, think like a chef and pop in some pickle flavor. No time to do the pickling yourself? No problem. Deli Direct has the unique artisan-made pickle flavors you need, and the perfect party dips to pair them with.

It’s as easy as 1-2-3:

Step 1: Order your five-pack of dip seasonings, selecting from the fun flavors available.
Step 2: Order pickles or some Hot and Spicy Pickled Beans.
Step 3: Combine in tasty and interesting ways.

For example, combine Dick’s Perky Pickles (you can even buy them by the gallon) with Kickin’ Tomato Horseradish Dip/Seasoning.

Mix JoJo’s Kick N’ Hot Kosher Dill Pickles with Cha Cha Chipotle Dip.

Or perk up this Tomato, Horseradish & Artichoke dip recipe by adding some chopped Bloody Mary chopped pickles.

Have fun and relax knowing your pickle-laced party dips will be trendy and tasty.

Braunschweiger Liverwurst is one of the most nutritious, freezable, versatile deli meats on the gourmet food market today. Unfortunately, many people don’t realize just how many great dishes may be made with it. Instead, they merely slap a slice between two pieces of bread and chow down. So to help change that perception, we wanted to share a few liverwurst dishes that are just too good to pass by:

Liverwurst Dip

If you’ve got a roll of Braunschweiger Liverwurst at home and company’s on the way, make dip! Simply combine a cup of the creamy liverwurst deli meat along with ½ cup of onion-flavored sour cream, 2 tablespoons of pickle relish, ½ teaspoon of garlic powder and 1 tablespoon of horseradish mustard together. Then serve it alongside of the dippers of your choice or use it as a topping.

Savory Scallion Cakes

Speaking of which, savory scallion cupcakes and pancakes taste great topped with liverwurst dip. The cakes are normally made with shredded cheese, chopped scallions and sour cream. Recipes that explain how to make the cakes are available all over the internet. However, most of those cakes are topped with scallion flavored cream cheese. We say skip the cream cheese and go with deli meat inspired toppings instead!

Meatballs and Spaghetti

Liverwurst may also be combined with ground beef or tomato sauce for a kick butt version of spaghetti and meatballs. Just blend equal amounts of the two different meats with a package of our Caramelized French Onion Dip seasoning packet, eggs and bread crumbs. Then form and cook the meatballs like you normally would and add them to the spaghetti sauce before plating up the meal for your family. Oh, and by the way, the same meat blend could be used to make a killer meatloaf too!

To discover additional great ways to enjoy Braunschweiger Liverwurst and other wholesome deli meats, please contact us at Deli Direct today. We sell liverwurst by the 2 pound roll along with other premium meats, cheeses, dips and more.

Did you know that the uniquely named horseradish plant is actually a close cousin to broccoli and cabbage? The horseradish plant grows to about five feet tall and is distinguishable by its thick, waxy leaves and clusters of white flowers. However, the star of the show that is made into many different horseradish products, is the long, white root of the horseradish plant. Horseradish is known for its pungent, spicy flavor and is typically used to add intense flavor to sauces, salad dressings, cocktails and as a topping for roast beef.
