A Bitter Herb From the Lower East Side

The Pickle Guys sell white and red horseradish for your Seder plate or to pair with gefilte fish.

By Florence Fabricant

The bitter herb or moror, for the Seder plate is usually horseradish (in my home, slivers of the fresh root). I’m not sure I’ll be shopping for it this year, but the jarred kind is always a substitute. And it’s a standard accompaniment for gefilte fish. Freshly made, properly forceful white (plain) and red (beet) horseradish is available from the Pickle Guys on the Lower East Side. It’s kosher for Passover. And this year it can be ordered for nationwide shipping, as well as curbside pickup.

Freshly ground red or white horseradish in vinegar, $12 a pint, the Pickle Guys, 357 Grand Street (Essex Street), 212-656-9739, pickleguys.com.
