PREVIOUS: Beet-Horseradish-Dill Spread NEXT: Beet Hummus

Ingredients (3)

  • 1 horseradish root (about 4 inches), peeled and chopped
  • 1-2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 raw beet, peeled and diced into ½ inch cubes

Summary

Making maror for your Passover Seder is a cinch (even though it can be just a tad dangerous).

Let me explain… While DIY maror is a lot of fun, be sure to proceed with caution. I make my maror in the food processor; danger can arise when you open the lid and the trapped horseradish fumes escape up your nostrils—and severe sinus relief (or burning) can occur. So be careful!

Instructions

  1. 1Combine all ingredients in food processor
  2. 2Pulse until horseradish and beets are well ground
  3. 3Carefully remove lid; do not inhale or smell mixture, as it may burn eyes and nasal passages
  4. 4Store in a glass container
  5. 5Serve
