Its tailgating time – and how about something that’s delicious, different and fun? Spicy, pungent, hot and healthy, it’s hard to NOT like horseradish. Shayna and I love it for its special, (sneaky), way of enhancing flavors in food. Have you ever seen a horseradish root up close and personal?
Isn’t it gnarly and ancient looking? Did you know that it has been used in cooking since ancient times? According to Greek mythology, the oracle at Delphi was the site of the pronouncement that “ the radish was worth its weight in lead, the beet its weight in silver, and the horseradish its weight in gold.”
You may be familiar with its use in cocktail sauce or a bloody mary, but don’t limit this interesting herb to just a once-in-a-while treat. Horseradish can be used for lots of dishes! Its yummy flavor makes not only this weeks recipe delish, it’s a great way of adding lots of flavor to yogurt to top a baked potato, or a wonderful fall mash-up of root veggies like turnips, sweet potatoes and parsnips.
Here’s a fun and appetizing way to serve up horseradish to your family and friends!
Smoked Trout on Granny Smith Apples
Mix together the cream cheese, yogurt, onions, apples, horseradish, dill, zest and salt and pepper in a bowl. Flake the trout and gently fold it into the cheese mixture. Top each apple slice with a couple of teaspoons of the trout and sprinkle with chives.
