Passover 2013 edition

Maror like you’ve never had it before-or …IMG_3321

I don’t remember where I read about this last year the day after Passover when it was too late, but I’m sure glad that I remembered in time this year! This is supper easy, everyone loved it, it caused quite a fit of giggling all around the table last night and will become a part of my Seder going forward. As if the four glasses of wine are not enough let’s throw in a shot of vodka too!

IMG_3319Peel and cut about half a large horseradish root into chunks and put it in the blender or food processor with at least a cup of vodka. After making it in the food processor I would strongly suggest using a blender as there was quite a lot of splash and clean-up to do. Run the machine until the horseradish it fairly fine (but not as fine as prepared horseradish). Pour it into a quart mason jar and fill with vodka. Leave it on the counter for a few days shaking the jar each time you pass through the room. Strain through a fine mesh strainer (like a tea strainer) and pour back into the bottle with the remaining vodka. IMG_3320Be sure to really squeeze the grated root after you strain it.

Warn your guests before serving. Really. It’s a lovely milky white and oh so pungent.

The leftovers are going to make the best Bloody Marys!

Happy Passover! Chag Sameach!
