Use stainless steel spoons and glass dishes to serve horseradish, as the tart sauce will tarnish silver.

This intensely spicy root vegetable has been playing a quiet yet pivotal role for eons, adding flavor to basic recipes: A Bloody Mary would be just peppery tomato juice without a spoonful, and cocktail sauce a mere shadow of itself. Grated and stored in vinegar, the condiment was one of our very first convenience foods, and we think it’s high time to let its zesty flag fly freely.

Our Pick

Gold's is additive-free, with grated bits that are neither too fine nor too thick, and the heat level is just right.
