Spotlight on: Horseradish

It’s a member of the mustard family and it's the root of the plant that's used in our sauces. The root, which looks similar to a parsnip, releases a distinctive smell when sliced and has a very hot, peppery flavour more potent than mustard. Once peeled, it can be grated and mixed with ingredients such as cream to make a sauce to accompany roast beef or fish.

A local East Anglian company have been supplying Stokes with both wild and cultivated horseradish for over four years now – ever since we started producing Stokes Creamed Horseradish. This small company, with only a handful of employees, produce between 3 – 5 tonnes of this delicious plant every week and mix the intense flavour of wild horseradish with a milder cultivated plant to give us the perfect blend of heat and flavour for our Creamed Horseradish Sauce.
