April 9, 2012: Horseradish Goes Luxe
Horseradish has our love–but in small doses.
The gnarly root is famously known for its biting, sinus-clearing properties. Added by the conservative teaspoonful, it can make or break a Bloody Mary.
But thanks to Carolyn Sherman, teaspoons have been swapped for larger measurements. Her new line, ISH (six jars for $74), gives horseradish a starring and versatile role by relaxing the flavor extremes with clever add-ins such as beets and citrus.
We spiked our deviled-egg filling with the beet iteration for a reversed and, we would argue, improved beet-pickled egg. The citrus ISH gets its sweet-tart tang from lemons and oranges. Mixed with fresh herbs and bread crumbs, it added a potent accent when spread over whole grilled fish.
By summer, Sherman’s line will have expanded to include garlic and ginger flavors.
Consider our horseradish-fond hearts expanded too.
