Misconception: Horseradish (chrain) is the preferred item to use to 
fulfill the mitzvah of eating maror at the Seder.

Fact: Among Ashkenazim, horseradish is widely used for maror. While 
horseradish often appears as the translation for tamcha, one of the 
vegetables listed in the Mishnah that may be used for maror, the 
translation is probably inaccurate.1 Although horseradish is now 
considered acceptable for use at the Seder, according to many 
posekim, lettuce and endives are preferable.
