Recipe by Elanas Pantry

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!

Ingredients Nutrition

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


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