Spices -- Passover Recipes -- Horseradish

 
Cooking Tips:   Horseradish

Horseradish root itself has hardly any aroma. When cut or grated, however, enzymes from the damaged plant cells break down sinigrin (a glucosilinate) to produce allyl isothiocyanate (mustard oil), which irritates the sinuses and eyes. Once grated, if not used immediately or mixed in vinegar, the root darkens and loses its pungency and becomes unpleasantly bitter when exposed to air and heat.

The flavor of the Horseradish Root is so bitter that it brings tears to the eyes, which is why it is included in the traditional Passover meal to commemorate the suffering of the Jews under Pharaoh's rule.
