If you are blessed to be in an area where there are ethnic foods, wasabi is a good Japanese horseradish to buy.
- It usually is sold on the top shelf in groceries because it comes in a little green box. You want to buy the kind in a tube. It is the best.
- It works in small amounts. Add it to mayo for an extra zip. I wouldn't add more than 1/4 tsp to a tablespoon of mayo.
- Leave off the lid under a glass jar with meat and it will keep the meat from spoiling. It is very high in vitamin C and scientists in Japan think wasabi might be good on surface skin infections.
- But it works great on sinus problems also. It will hurt like the dickens, but it will open up your sinuses immediately. The pain goes straight to your head for 2-3 seconds but you will be able to breathe through your nose!
- The Yellow Japanese Mustard called Karashi will work in a similar way, but it isn't as strong.

Good ideas :-) You can find powdered Wasabi in almost every regular grocery store nowdays and it doesn't go bad as quickly as the paste :-) It's also less expensive than the paste and tastes just as good once mixed with any liquid :-)

Thanks, I really like wasabi. The heat wave you get from it is over so much faster than with chili-pepper products. So many things go well with it, even broiled fruit, and I like to mix it into a tablespoon of salad dressing (not the mayo knockoff) to wake up a salad. Yum!
