Ingredients: Onion, Garlic, Kosher Salt, Parsley, Dried Horseradish, Black Pepper, Dill Seed, Celery Seed.


On our way back from Wisconsin’s Madeline Island, we found a rustic eatery on the banks of Lake Superior.  The house specialty was sturgeon sauteed with a delicious dry horseradish and vegetable rub.  The waitress told us that because horseradish is so abundant in the area, it is utilized in many forms, not just as a pickled paste for cocktail sauce, but also dried and used to accent a number of foods such as eggs, grilled vegetables, frying batters, and chip dips.  All the way home from that holiday I thought of ways to use such a blend.  With it, your options are truly limitless.


Recipes for our Midwestern Garden Radish


  • 1 ½ lb lean, boneless beef

into 1/8” strips. Trim fat.  Cut with grain for chewy jerky.  Marinate 1 ½ lb cut meat overnight in:

  • ¼ cup Wine Vinegar
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup worchestershire sauce

Lay strips on oven rack (use foil to catch drippings). Dry in oven at 150º,  leaving door slightly ajar, for 8-12 hours. Flip several times.


  • 1 tsp Midwestern Garden Radish
  • 1/3 cup sour cream, plain yogurt or cream cheese

    Blend thoroughly.  Best when left to sit 1 hour before enjoying.
