Collards are cabbage in which the fleshy leaves are not formed into a head but are long like cos lettuce. This variety is grown principally in the southern part of the United States where they do not have sufficient cold weather to head or harden cabbage.

Horseradish is, as a rule, used as a seasoning to sauces, or to various cold mock meat dishes. The edible portion consists of a long tap root containing aromatic principles, and is as pungent as black mustard. It is sometimes stewed and served with cream sauce. It has no food value.
