The 'wake me up' horseradish

This perennial, nose-tickling root is an excellent way to add some kick to your fall dishes.

Native to Europe, horseradish is related to mustard greens and radishes. It's often used to complement red meat dishes such as roast beef, or included as a garnish on eggs or even in cocktails.

More than just a way to clear your head, horseradish also contains significant amounts of cancer-fighting compounds and is useful in relieving sinus discomfort and helping with urinary tract infections.
