Polish Horseradish with Beets {Ćwikła z Chrzanem}
I am a big fan of horseradish as a condiment. Not only does it add flavor to various dishes like sausages, ham, potatoes, and sandwiches, but it also acts as a sinus decongestant. I always have a jar of it on hand, especially during the winter months.

One dish I particularly enjoy is ćwikła, which is a mixture of roasted shredded beet and horseradish. The beet helps to balance out the sharpness of the horseradish with a touch of sweetness and earthiness. If you're short on time, you can use store-bought horseradish.

My grandfather, Władysław, who was on my father's side, grew horseradish in his yard. It was incredibly spicy after being harvested. Grating it caused him to tear up, but the horseradish with beet dish he made was the best in the world. The spicy aroma filled the air.
