Horseradish Three Ways
We all know horseradish as the condiment that packs a punch and Shirley shows three ways we can use it to spice up our lives.
If you want to add a little kick to your meal you can shred horseradish and eat it on a sandwich or cracker. The finer it is shredded the hotter it becomes. Tame the spice by adding vinegar.
Horseradish is anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal. When combined with honey it can help clear your nasal passages or soothe a sore throat.
Finally, horseradish can be used as a muscle and joint reliever by making a paste and placing it in a cloth creating a pain poultice.
