Herb of the Year is Here: Meet Horseradish!!

Once more, the expertise and dedication that is SAHS finds its way to our meeting podium. You’ll welcome
past president Eileen Achorn as this month’s program speaker. Horseradish?! Yep, and here’s a peek: Horseradish
(Armoracia rusticana, syn. Cochlearia armoracia) is a perennial plant of the Brassicaceae family, which also includes mustard, wasabi, broccoli, and cabbages.

The plant is probably native to southeastern Europe and
western Asia, but is popular around the world today. It grows up to five feet tall and is mainly cultivated for its large white, tapered
root. Neat stuff. Eileen will treat us to even more great information and fun stuff. She’s written a brochure and will offer a preliminary view that evening as well.

Members whose names begin with A-F are asked to come a little early and bring a treat for the hospitality table. Once your
settled, come back to the front door and help greet everyone—great way to learn names!
Don’t forget to bring the recipe for publication in the newsletter.
We’re in the San Antonio Garden Center, located on the corner of Funston and N. New Braunfels.
