February is heart-focused for two reasons - one is Valentine’s Day and the other is that it's Heart Health Month. If you’re looking to celebrate both, horseradish products should certainly be on your shopping list. Horseradish is heart healthy and may be incorporated into a thoughtful gift.

What makes horseradish heart healthy? Why it’s the natural, fat-free ingredients! It contains mustard oils, enzymes, vitamin A and vitamin C. According to The Herb Society of America, it is believed to benefit more than just the heart and circulatory system. For example, it is sometimes used to combat minor edema and inflammation.

Health factors aside, horseradish has the potential to elevate romantic meals too. For instance, imagine enjoying a platter with oysters seasoned with a horseradish and bacon sauce. Oysters are also sometimes served on or with horseradish ice, which is easy to make. It involves combining simple syrup, horseradish and vinegar together. Instructions on making the shaved, horseradish flavored ice are readily available on many recipe sites.

Other aphrodisiacs may benefit from a spoonful of horseradish too. Let’s take beets for example. They could be combined with horseradish to create a fabulous borsht. Brussels sprouts, another veggie known to spark desire, taste excellent with horseradish. Just make a horseradish sauce and pour it over your lover’s helping of Brussels sprouts right before presenting the plate.

Clearly, lovers could skip the fancy dinners and choose to give each other bottles of horseradish paired with additional gourmet treats. We’ve got a Horseradish Heaven gift basket that would be phenomenal in that regard. It contains crackers, mustard, dip, pickles, spread, block cheese and of course, horseradish. They’re all packaged in a quaint basket complete with a cheese cleaver. 

Let's celebrate this February with heart-healthy horseradish!

Don’t banish the barbecue grill to the shed just yet. Summer may be officially over but that’s no reason to put down the horseradish products and grill aprons. There are still warm afternoons on the horizon and there’s always the trusty stove nearby waiting to pick up the slack. And as for us, we’ve got some cool recipes guaranteed to keep you chillin’:

1.) Marmalade and Horseradish Products

Do you want a sweet sauce with a lot of heat? Try blending equal parts of your favorite marmalade with one of our horseradish products. If the marmalade isn’t sweet enough, add a little more sweetener. Generally, honey, powdered, brown or granulated sugar will do. When you’ve got the perfect blend of sweet and heat, go ahead and use it as a dipping or basting sauce. It goes great with grilled pork, seafood and chicken.

2.) Pie Filling and Horseradish Sauce

Do you love the taste of lemon pie filling? Okay, what about other pie fillings like cherry and apple? Believe it or not, they mix well with horseradish products too. Scrape one cup of your favorite pie filling into a food processor, mixer or blender. Then add the following:

To give it a smooth consistency, add virgin olive or canola oil at the end. A cup of oil or less should take care of it. Afterward, use the modified pie filling as a glaze, dipping or cocktail sauce. It works well with meats and various desserts (e.g. tart fillings).

3.) Salad Dressing and Horseradish Products

Finally, try blending horseradish products with your favorite salad dressings and some honey. It is a great substitute for barbecue sauce. Plus, it works with late season veggies, deviled eggs and salad greens too. The list of good dressings to consider includes, but shouldn’t be limited to French, blue cheese and Italian.

Did you know that July is not only National Grilling Month; it is National Horseradish Month too? So break out the grilling meats and horseradish sauce. It’s time to light a fire in the EZ Disposable Grill and put some sizzle into your life. We’ve got the perfect horseradish marinade and condiment recipes. Just be forewarned. They’re known to spark a round of kisses for the cook, so pucker up and get ready to enjoy one of the best meals of your life:

Horseradish Marinade

To make our National Grilling Month marinade, you’ll need equal amounts of horseradish sauce and Dijon mustard. One tablespoon of each should yield enough to serve four center cut pork chops, NY strip steaks or chicken thighs. Once you’ve got the horseradish and Dijon mustard in the bowl, add two teaspoons of lemon juice and two tablespoons of high smoke point oil to it. Afterward, toss in some salt and pepper to taste before adding the grilling meats to the marinade and popping the bowl into the fridge. Let it remain in the fridge for one to two hours before removing the meats and placing them on to the EZ Disposable Grill.

Horseradish Mustard

If your list of grilling meats includes Polish kielbasa, seasoned bratwurst, jumbo franks or cheddar-jalapeno smoked bratwurst, you’re going to want to douse them with our horseradish mustard. Combine three tablespoons of salad dressing with equal amounts of Dijon mustard and horseradish. Next, mix in two teaspoons of both onion and garlic powder along with a ½ tablespoon of fresh parsley or another herb of your choosing. Once you’re done mixing, the horseradish mustard will be ready to go on to the grilling meats. If you don't want to go through the trouble of making a homemade version try out our horseradish mustard!

Horseradish Mayonnaise

Finally, you might want to swap out the plain mayonnaise for one infused with horseradish, sour cream and Dijon mustard. It’s great as a cold salad base and you can use it as a burger topping or veggie dip too. Simply combine 1/3 cup of unflavored or flavored sour cream with the horseradish mustard we mentioned above and that’s it. It’s dinner time! To learn more, please check out our collection of National Grilling - Horseradish Month products and contact us.

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.

It makes a heckuva chip dip, a sauce for everything from Prime Rib to a roast beef sandwich and an exquisite accompaniment to seafood of any type. It opens up the sinuses, makes the eyes water and the brain freeze. No, it’s not ice cream, it’s horseradish. It’s been used as both medicinal and condiment since the Egyptians. No one seems to know the origins of the root, but its good effects have been clearing respiratory tracts around the world.

History

The main ingredient of horseradish products has a bit of a sneaky history. It is thought to be first described by Pliny the Elder as Armoracia, a member of the broccoli family. It has appeared from Russia to Europe as Cochlearia macrocarpa, a plant closely resembling and used much like Armoracia, but slightly different. So we have a plant masquerading as another and appearing right about the same time-frame, around 3,000 years. People looked askance at it at first, but soon found comforting uses for it.

Medicinal Uses

In olden times, horseradish was used as an expectorant, a rub for arthritis and other joint aches, a cure for chilblains and much more. Taken internally, the root clears the chest, helps with flu and cold symptoms, aids the digestion and is a diuretic. Modern science, however, has found a new facet of the root to be useful, which is glucosinolates. These aid the liver in “detoxifying carcinogens and may suppress the growth of tumors” reports research entity Life Extension. Horseradish’s antibiotic properties fight urinary tract infections, coughs and bronchitis. Got muscles aches or dandruff? Use horseradish. Searching for an aphrodisiac? You got it. Horseradish. This is one of the few roots for which processing actually increases its medicinal efficiency.

Condiment

It wasn’t until the 17th century that horseradish began to be used as a condiment. The root was mainly used by persons performing hard labor jobs and country folk. No one knew what to do with it, so they tried it on everything. Traditionally used on meats and seafood, prepared horseradish sauces can be used in a variety of ways such as:

  • Mix two teaspoons Deli Direct Super Hot Horseradish Sauce with one quarter cup sour cream as a baked potato topper
  • Combine four strips of finely chopped bacon, one quarter cup sour cream, two teaspoons Deli Direct Super Hot Horseradish Sauce, salt and pepper to taste and one pound of Brussels sprouts. Cook until sprouts are done, about 20 minutes
  • Stem 24 mushrooms and dip them in butter. Place on a cookie sheet. Stuff mushrooms with one clam. Top these with a mixture of five tablespoons Deli Direct Super Hot Horseradish Sauce, eight tablespoons mayonnaise and one teaspoon Worcestershire. Broil for approximately eight minutes or until ingredients are browned
  • Mix one tablespoon Deli Direct Super Hot Horseradish Sauce, one tablespoon Dijon mustard and one tablespoon fresh chopped parsley into one half cup mayonnaise for an eye-opening beginning to a great sandwich

Now, we leave it up to you if you want to rub this versatile product into sore knees, achy lower backs or even on your chest in the event of congestion. Rubbing it in your hair to defeat dandruff might feel a little strange, but we’re confident it will do the trick for you. As an aphrodisiac, well, we’ll leave that up to you. However, we are experts at making a product that will enhance many more recipes than those included here. So, bon appétit and make sure to contact us with any new uses for this spicy addition to meals.
