When I lived at home growing up, it was pretty much a given that each Sunday we’d have a roast beef dinner. Usually, early on Sunday morning, before we left for Church, my parents would be peeling potatoes and carrots in preparation to go with the roast. It was such a comfort knowing what to expect each week.
But you know what was my favourite part? The horseradish to dip my roast beef in. Seriously. I was that weird kid that LOVED it. Occasionally though I’d get just a little bit too much and my nose would burn. To which my dad would commonly respond with, “It’ll clear out your sinuses!” To this day, I prefer to eat my roast beef with some horseradish on the side. Perhaps it’s nostalgia, but I also think it’s delicious.
So you can imagine my delight when I was in a local European superstore last week faced with and entire row of various types of horseradish!!! There were so many types – mild, strong, hot, spicy, and tons of flavours. I knew that I didn’t really need horseradish, but I wanted some…and for $1.29 you can’t say “no”.
So in the end I picked up this cranberry horseradish. I’m definitely stoked to give it a try!
The only question is: what will I have it with? Should I just eat it plain? Should I try it as a sandwich spread? I need your ideas! I need your help to break me out of my roast beef ‘n’ horseradish comfort zone.
What would you do with cranberry horseradish?
