Horseradish is a spicy root that’s popular in parts of Europe, in the U.S. and even in Japan. In Japan, wasabi is often made from horseradish, rather than the wasabi plant. In the Czech Republic, and some other Central European countries, the root is sometimes grated and eaten raw with mustard or paired with some smoked meat, such as sausage. Other people use the grated root in deviled eggs, homemade mayonnaise (if you like it spicy!), etc.
