Who knows who has the hottest Horseradish. Store brands don't cut it. Any ideas?

    Silver Spring out of Eau Claire, WI sells a fresh ground horseradish that is good and hot. I've found it in the refrigerated case at Rainbow stores in the past.

      This would be my choice as well. Can be found at most of the local grocery stores. I've gotten it at Cub.

        I second (third?) Silver Spring. Note that the "fresh ground" (my favorite) is different from any of the "creamed" or "prepared" offerings. It comes in a cylindrical jar, and the white label is more papery with red print. I've never tried the "extra-hot prepared."

        Buy the fresh root from a co-op.

          Lund's also has fresh horseradish root right now, and, I agree, homemade seems like your best option.

            Gee thanks I know all about fresh root. I was looking for the hottest ready made. Last time I bought root it was not very hot. By the by..... this is not the home cooking board..

              People often post threads on specific produce here. You provided zero context or designation of what you are seeking. Hopefully someone will have some input.

                  Confused. Are you looking for the hottest ready made (I was looking for the hottest ready made) or the hottest root (which Coop has the hottest root)?

                    Was looking for the hottest ready made, but people said I should make my own. Roots are all different so suggesting I make my own without where to buy the hottest root would do no good....To late the Ham will be what it is with what I have. Thanks Cayjohan for your suggestion.....

            I know you didn't ask about mustard, but Silver Spring's Beer and Brat mustard hits you right in the brain.
