I admit it…sometimes I need help finding a recipe or answering a question. That’s when I turn to certain ‘helpers’ and readers.
Regarding ‘hren’, this is what I have found: According to the Malkhasian dictionary (the closest thing to the Oxford English Dictionary for Armenian), “khren” (variants: jakhuk, dzovaboghk, wild beet, kren) is the Armenian word for cochlearia armoracia (horseradish). Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horseradish.
It sounds like this is what (the reader) is looking for. I never knew the name before, but I guess I know now! 🙂
