The Horseradish Information Council (HIC), the international trade association for horseradish processors, invites you to celebrate July as National Horseradish Month (NHM). July brings hot weather, and it's a great time to discover sizzling recipe ideas using this spicy root.
NHM is a month-long event held every July to celebrate the goodness of horseradish and to encourage consumers to eat horseradish year-round. The NHM event began in July 2005.
Horseradish is a member of the mustard family, and is cultivated for its thick, fleshy white roots. The bite and aroma of the horseradish root are almost absent until it is grated or ground. Adding vinegar helps to stabilize the flavor.
Approximately 6 million gallons of prepared horseradish are produced annually in the U.S., enough to generously season sandwiches to reach 12 times around the world. The next time you're in your favorite store, grab some horseradish and get creative. Horseradish creates a flavorful kick and can be used in many dishes.
