Horseradish fans, we've got your best interest at heart. We've found 12 reasons (or recipes) for you to sneak that spicy root into your meals. While you can almost always expect to see horseradish served next to roast beef in the UK -- and there's nothing wrong with that -- we found a few more interesting uses for our favorite root.

If the winter is getting to your sinuses, or if you just can't get enough horseradish in your life, cook up one of these recipes and you'll be feeling like new in no time. We just have one request, prepare your own horseradish. The taste difference from the store-bought kind will astound you.
