Huntsinger Farms Inc

By: Bubbajunk.com


Huntsinger Farms Inc was established in 1929 by Ellis Huntsinger. It grows horseradish along with corn, soybeans and forage crops on over 9,000 acres of farmland in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Harvested in both spring and fall, horseradish roots grown on the farm are placed in cold storage until processed, bottled and sold under the Silver Spring brand to markets worldwide. Silver Spring and Bookbinder's Foods are subsidiaries of Huntsinger Farms. In addition to horseradish, Silver Spring processes and sells a selection of sauces, mustards and other quality food products.
 
Ellis Huntsinger exposed that the addition of fresh sweet dairy cream helped further enhance the heat, flavor and longevity of prepared horseradish. This discovery helped him expand his horseradish sales to markets throughout the United States. Huntsinger FarmÂâ€Ã¢„¢s employees plant horseradish in both spring and fall using custom built equipment similar to potato planters. Short sections of root trimmed from the previous yearÂâ€Ã¢„¢s crop are placed in the soil where they will sprout in the spring and grow into a new crop.
 
Horseradish roots are washed and then inspected for blemishes which are cut out by hand. The inspected roots are rinsed again, weighed and placed into a cooler until processed into the finished product. The roots are taken out from cold storage as and when they are needed to fill product orders. Horseradish is typically ground and mixed with vinegar and a small amount of salt as natural preservatives. Other ingredients such as cream, tomato paste, beets and mustard may be added to make a variety of horseradish sauces and products.
 
Huntsinger Farms Inc prepared Cream Style, and Beet Horseradish, Seafood Cocktail Sauce and Tartar Sauce. They are all packed in glass and refrigerated straight away after processing to preserve maximum flavor and freshness. Silver Spring Horseradish Sauce and Hot Dog Relish also remain refrigerated. Silver Spring mustards are packed in convenient clear plastic squeeze bottles can be shipped and sold without refrigeration.
 
Horseradish is a natural condiment that adds a typical pungent flavor to foods.  It is commonly used as a relish with meats and shellfish or as a tangy seasoning in sauces served with these foods.  It also gives passion to relishes, appetizers, canapés, dips, spreads, salad dressings, salads, sauces, and gravies.
 
Huntsinger Farms Inc tries to focus on constantly producing a quality product for their customers with modernization and flexibility.
