  • Why is your horseradish/cocktail sauce so hot?

    The fresher the product is, the "hotter" the profile will be. As it ages, it will lose some of its heat. To retain the flavor, always store under refrigeration in a tightly sealed container. Draining the vinegar from prepared horseradish makes it taste milder. In all recipes using horseradish, vary the amounts according to taste and to compensate for differences in "heat" that come with the natural aging of the prepared product. For a milder cocktail sauce, add a little ketchup and a squeeze of lemon to taste.

  • Are your products Kosher?

    All of our Silver Spring products are daily Kosher under Orthodox Union supervision. In addition, we provide Prepared Horseradish and Horseradish with Beets that are Kosher for Passover. The Passover products are identified with a printed Kosher for Passover tamper evident band while our everyday product has a clear band.

  • Are your products gluten free?

    While not all of our products are labeled as gluten free, most are made with naturally gluten free ingredients. If you have specific questions or concerns, please reach out to our customer service department for further information.

  • How long can I use your products after the expiration date?

    Silver Spring products stored under refrigeration will retain their flavor and "heat" for an extended period of time. It is a matter of personal taste. As horseradish ages and is exposed to air, it will in time lose some of its heat.

  • How do I read the code date?

    The code dates on our Silver Spring products read as Best When Used by Date. Always check this date to assure that you are buying the freshest available products.

  • Can I still use your products if they have not been stored in the refrigerator?

    Silver Spring products stored under refrigeration will retain their flavor and "heat" for an extended period of time. It is a matter of personal taste. As horseradish ages and is exposed to air, it will in time lose some of its heat.

  • What are the "spices" listed in your products ingredient statements as I am intolerant to some spices?

    Please submit your question through our "Contact Us" page or call our Customer Service line at 1-800-826-7322 with your specific question and we will be pleased to address your concern.

  • This jar of your product is hotter or not as hot as others I've had. Why does the heat level vary?

    We work hard to offer fresh and most simple product formulations as possible. Horseradish, like other crops, is prone to variations due to growing conditions and location. We strive for consistency as much as possible; however, like any seasonal crop you may encounter a batch that is slightly different than others. Most of the time the differences in heat and texture are not noticeable to the average person. We are unique as we grow our own horseradish and routinely evaluate blends from our fields in order to provide the best horseradish possible to our valued customers.

    In addition to the characteristic of the root itself, prepared horseradish is also hotter the fresher it is and will lose its heat the longer it sits unused, especially after opened and exposed to air. Elements such as refrigeration and time will impact the heat level which is why we encourage all retailers and consumers to keep our products refrigerated and rotated. A jar that is close to or past its best by date will probably be significantly milder than a jar that has been freshly packaged.

  • Shipping Policy

    Orders will be processed by the next business day. Ship date will be determined by service level and product type to ensure the best quality product. Shipping transit is calculated by business days and does not include weekends or holidays.

Horseradish Facts
  • What is horseradish?

    • Horseradish is a plant that comes from the mustard family.
    • Horseradish plants are perennial.
    • Horseradish roots can be grated for use as a condiment in a variety of dishes, sauces, dressings and marinades.
    • Horseradish delivers flavor to any meal without fat or cholesterol.
    • Silver Spring prepared horseradish is naturally preserved with vinegar and salt, and sometimes cream, to bring this intriguing herb to you in a convenient form.
    • Horseradish is one of the five bitter herbs for the Jewish Passover.
  • What makes horseradish hot?

    The sharp and piquant flavor and the penetrating smell of horseradish become apparent when the root is grated or ground. This is because the root contains highly volatile oils which are released by enzyme activity when the root cells are crushed. If exposed to air or stored improperly, horseradish loses its pungency rapidly after grinding.

    A more technical version

    Horseradish has a relatively high concentration of glucosinalates stored in its roots. When the root cells are crushed by cutting, chewing or grating, enzymes are released that convert these glucosinalates into highly volatile oils called isothiocyanates. It is the isothiocyanate that gives horseradish its characteristic bite.

    Finer grinds of horseradish are usually hotter than courser grinds because more volatile oils have been released.

    If freshly grated horseradish is exposed to air for long periods of time, kept out of refrigeration or stored improperly, it will lose its heat quickly.

    Brown-looking horseradish usually means the product is old and will have lost most of its characteristic bite.

  • How do I store horseradish?

    Keep horseradish cold to keep it hot!

    To keep prepared horseradish (commercial or homemade) at its flavorful best, store it in a tightly covered jar in the refrigerator or in the freezer. It will keep its good quality for about four to six months in the refrigerator and longer in the freezer. Fresh roots may be stored for several months if they are placed in polyethylene bags and stored at 32°F to 38°F.

  • Where does the name horseradish come from?

    There are many different theories on where the name horseradish comes from. We believe the name horseradish may have come from an English adaptation of its German name. In early times the plant grew wild in European coastal areas; the Germans called it "meerrettich," or "sea radish." The German word "meer" sounds like "mare" in English. Perhaps "mareradish" eventually became "horseradish."

    The word "horseradish" first appeared in print in 1597 in John Gerarde's English herbal on medicinal plants.

  • How can I grow my own horseradish?

    Horseradish is planted in either spring or fall of the year, by using the stock from trimmings of the crop's main root at harvest. For optimal harvest, it is best to allow the root to mature for one entire year.
