Last summer, we were walking through one of the food markets in our neighborhood when I noticed a stall that sold horseradish. That’s it. Just horseradish, the prepared kind, that comes in a jar. And there were two versions: beet horseradish and citrus horseradish.
The woman selling it asked us if we wanted to try it. “Yes!” I exclaimed, a little too eagerly. I love horseradish. I love the kick and earthiness combination that nothing else gives you like horseradish. This citrus version that I tried was all that and more. By introducing orange and lemon in there it added dimensions of sourness and sweetness that made it pretty much irresistible.
