Horseradish ground as an alternative to mustard
Horseradish ground is a spicy powder that we do not often use in our kitchens. At least, not in Dutch kitchens. In neighbouring countries such as Germany and England it is used a lot more often in dishes. Horseradish powder has a characteristic taste that resembles that of mustard. You use it to give food a spicy touch. At Natural Spices you can order it online in a package of 400 grams or 1 kilo.
The use of horseradish ground
The horseradish was already known among the Ancient Greeks. It was also traditionally used in Jewish cuisine and today it is very popular in the United States. In Germany horseradish is used in dishes that accompany fish such as trout. In Great Britain, it is mainly used in meat dishes such as roast beef. Ground horseradish also tastes very good with mashed potatoes or mayonnaise and in oriental dishes. You add it just before serving, to prevent it from losing its characteristic sharp taste during cooking. In sauces, too, the flavour turns out really nice. In some recipes you can use horseradish to replace mustard. Not only is it a good substitute, horseradish is also a good alternative for those who have a mustard allergy.
Horseradish ground and the difference between mustard and wasabi
Horseradish ground is the root of the horseradish in powder format. The plant is from the crossflower family. This plant grows on various continents, including Europe. The powder that you can buy online from us comes from Germany. The root of the horseradish is a bitter and spicy herb. Its taste is strongly reminiscent of mustard, but also contains a horseradish hint. The similarities in taste between mustard and horseradish reveal that the two are related. Where in the mustard plant the aroma is in the seeds, in the horseradish it is in the cells of the root. The well-known Japanese wasabi comes from another plant from the same crossflower family. This wasabi has a similar sharp taste. The horseradish is often mistaken for rettich. However, it concerns two family members.
Horseradish ground as a medicine
Horseradish ground is not only a powerful flavouring, it is also good for your health. Horseradish contains a high concentration of vitamin C and folic acid and works as a natural antibiotic. It has been used against urinary problems for a long time. Today we know that it also supports digestion and relieves muscle aches and pains. Horseradish is also mucolytic and therefore helps with a stuck cough.
