    Horseradish provides a heat plus a specific flavor-what you would sub for it would depend a lot on what specifically you're using it for.
    Have you looked in a larger grocery in the condiments section? It's most common sold in prepared form, ground, in small bottles; although is occasionally available fresh.

    Hello Mia;
    Horseradish has its own taste and the only other item would
    be Wasabi (a Japanese Hot horseradish). This is available
    either premixed but mostly in powder form. The Wasabi
    may not be used in recipes that call for horseradish, but is
    good with steaks, fish, sushi.
    Horseradish should be available in most stores in the
    condiment section as it is popular world wide.
    Give it a try and maybe keep asking others and maybe they
    will be able to help out.
    I grow my own horseradish, so I just go and dig some out as
    I need it.

    Hmmm--consulting "The Big Book of Herbs"...
    If the book is accurate, the Portuguese name for horseradish should be "armoracio". If that doesn't help, look for wasabi powder. Here in the U.S, most wasabi powders contain mostly dried horseradish because it keeps its potency better than dried wasabi.

    icon_lol.gif Thank you Peter you've been a great help, and so has everyone else. I had no I idea you could grow it so easly. I'm going to look it up and see if I can get my hands into some and plant them in my backyard. I certainly have the room for it. Thanks again everyone for all of you help!!!!! icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

    Be careful where you plant them, though, unless you want them to take over. Horseradish can be terribly invasive.
    Growing it in a container might be a good idea.

    icon_rolleyes.gif Oh my I certainly wouldn't want that to happen, as I grow so many other things. Thank you for your advice, I think I will give the container a try, thanks again. icon_lol.gif
