* Horseradish has been used for medicinal purposes in everything from herbal baths to cold remedies. According to the Roman naturalist Pliny, it was also used as an antidote after people had overindulged.

Fresh grated horseradish is very tasty and far more potent than anything you will ever get from a jar. But the fumes are more irritating to the nose and eyes than an onion due to mustard oil in horseradish. You can use a food processor to make grating horseradish easier. It's best to grate small quantities and use it the same day because the pungency and health benefits decline with time.
