A plant originally from eastern Europe, horseradish is a root from which wavy and jagged leaves grow. Its very firm flesh is cream-white in color. Horseradish contains an essential oil similar to mustard, which gives it its hot and acrid taste. Horseradish, which belongs to the same family as the cabbage, mustard, turnip and radish, contains more vitamin C than an orange.

Taipei, --
Taiwan - Tens of thousands of demonstrators gathered Saturday in Taipei to protest government policies ahead of the inauguration of recently re-elected Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou.
Wearing red and green armbands emblazoned with the Chinese character for "anger," the demonstrators snaked their way through the streets of the capital before gathering in front of the ornate presidential office building. The main opposition Democratic Progressive Party said it expected about 100,000 people to attend.
Participants said they were angry about Ma's economic policies, including his decision - announced after his January re-election - to raise utility prices. Ma is to be inaugurated for his second four-year term Sunday.
Trading company employee Jerry Hsu said he voted for Ma in January because of his success in improving relations with China, but was now having second thoughts.
"Stabilizing relations with the mainland is not enough," Hsu said. "Ma failed to consider everyday realities when developing his economic policies."
Added recent college graduate Wang Wen-ling, "Pay for college graduates is so low that we can hardly dream about further studies or marriage."
Analysis of voting patterns in January's election - which Ma won by six percentage points over his DPP rival - suggest that relations with China were uppermost in many voters' minds.
But since Ma's victory in January, popular anger has crystallized around his economic policies, particularly his decision to raise utility prices, which many Taiwanese saw as dishonest, largely because of its postelection timing. His public approval rating now stands at about 20 percent.
As Saturday's protest began, Ma told reporters that he was sorry so many people were unhappy about his policies, but attributed their negative reception to poor government communication.
"The policies are good," he said. "It's just that we didn't explain them to the public enough."
