Horseradish is traditionally grown in the South-Eastern parts of Styria. Horseradish does not only add spiciness to every cold snack, due to its mustard oil content, but, it is very healthy as well. It was used as a medical plant for centuries because of its content. The Vitamin C it contains is doubly as high as those in citrus fruits and thus a perfect killer of colds.
The use of horseradish should not be limited to Easter. A stem of horseradish can be stored in the fridge for quite a long period of time. Creative cooks whip up appetizers, main courses, side dishes, spreads and salads with this root.
