I dunno about your fancy china horseradish, but I can get some suitable for sauce and bloody mary's around here. Wouldn't say I can get wasabi, but certainly get root horseradish, spicy as all heck if used correctly.

Well I prefer horse radish and got a call from my neighbor that I can come and pick as much as I like.

I have a large plant at the side of the house. I lived here 5 years before I even knew what it was. Thought it was some kind of weed kept growing up thru a hosta.

So then I researched what to do with it. Supposedly you have to divide and transplant frequently to keep the root at full potential. Then as already stated, lots of tissues and nose plugs, open windows and fan blowing when processing.
The fresher the more potent - to the point of "be careful!"

Although I do like horseradish, especially picante, I just don't use enough to go to all that trouble for processing. One day maybe...

Yes wasabi and horseradish are different and taste different.

I can find horseradish root in my regular supermarket. I don't recall seeing it at Asian markets....

Well, if you have a horseradish plant, you are going to have to take a lot of work to bring it to up to where it would be even a food spice. Generally horseradish picks up spiciness by breeding and work on it, lots of things like making the soil a certain content. I know some people who have some cuttings, if you want to go that way. You have to feed the plant quite a bit, and it takes some skill. And you "might" get some horseradish that is similar than you could get at the store, yours could be awesome, I'd be happy to see your progress.

Cheers,
