The taste of the root resembles that of mustard, the same goes for the horseradish sauce. Horseradish can therefore be used as a mustard replacement. If necessary, you can stabilise the taste by adding vinegar.
Horseradish is used as a general flavour enhancer in Germany, Denmark and in the Jewish kitchen, especially for fish. In addition, the root can be used raw or roasted to add to sauces for roast beef and other things. It also goes well with chicken or hard boiled eggs combined with vinegar and cream.
It is recommended to grate the root in a properly ventilated room as it activates the tear glands even more than onions do. In addition, it is not recommended to boil the root; it is best to use it fresh.
