(from Typebase4 - Horseradish/Prepared)  Though it has spiky green leaves that can be used in salads, horseradish...


I just got some horseradish root and started growing it.  I tasted one of the small leaves today and it has a nice spicy horseradish flavor.  I looked in Typebase and saw the above quote, and wondered:

Does anyone here eats the leaves?

Is there any way to tell if the leaves have the same rating as the root?

I assume the AB rating for the prepared horseradish is when it is prepared using beet juice rather than vinegar.  Does anyone know if this is correct?

I believe that is correct.

the HR leaves must taste a bit like dandelion, right?

enjoy!

The horseradish leaves don't have the bitter taste that dandelion leaves have.  I don't know if I have ever tasted dandelion leaves as young as these horseradish leaves, since it is only two or three weeks since I planted the horseradish root.  The leaves first started peeking out the middle of last week.  These are very tender and warming, but no bitterness whatsoever.

sounds great!
I personally enjoy the bitter taste of DL leaves..........

as well as arugula, for example.

 I also grow my own horseradish and enjoy the young tender leaves [9 months of the year] in any type of salad.

When the leaves get larger towards the end of the season they can have a somewhat "drying effect" (like chewing on Yellow Dock leaves) on the palate when raw - cooked or pickled would be better.

As above, I am fine with the Bitter/Peppery flavours of our more wild foods - saves using vinegar and pepper if shredded finely into salads. Also the finicky eaters won't notice if they can't see it.
