Koch original Bavarian horseradish is a hot, pungent condiment that fits best to boiled beef (Tafelspitz) and many grilled specialties. From the Franconian region of Bavaria.
Bavarian cuisine is famous for including hot, pungent horseradish, made from the local Bavarian Meerrettich (engl: horseradish) plant. This is a perennial root vegetable of the Brassicaceae family, which also includes mustard, wasabi, broccoli, and cabbage. Hengstenberg horseradish is of particular good quality.
