H is for Horseradish

Illinois grows most of the world’s supply of horseradish. It's a white root that is ground up and mixed with vinegar to give you the hottest taste you ever had. Just smelling it will make you cry. Horseradish goes great with sausages, hot dogs and other meats. You can buy the fresh root to grind up yourself or in small jars ready to go.
