International Hot and Spicy Food Day

What does hot and spicy mean to you?  Often times, people people think of assorted peppers to add heat to their favorite recipes.  Jalapenos, Habaneros, Pablanos, Serranos, etc.  All good choices and quite popular to use, but there are other ways to add a bit of heat to your creations.

Horseradish was named the 2011 Herb of the year by the International Herb Association.  It has a very unique flavor and texture.  This root has roots back as far as 1500 BC.  Having been commercially produced in the US since about 1860, it makes it one of the first convenience foods produced in the US.

The next time you are looking for a bit of spice to add to a dish, consider adding a spoonful or two to some of your favorites:

  • Cole Slaw
  • Potato Salad
  • Baked Beans
  • Deviled Eggs
  • Soups
  • Meat Loaf
  • Hamburgers
  • BBQ Sauce
  • Steamed Veggies
  • Roasts
These are a few things you can add a new flavor to.  Feel free to come up with your own and add your suggestions below!
