This is out of my Hot & Spicy magazine cookbook...the book says that the combination may seem strange but remember that horseradish is a member of the mustard family...it's bite is agreeably balanced with maple syrup and chili power...I finally made this...it has a nice touch of sweetness and just a slight flavor of horseradish...we really enjoyed it! Hope you do too!
