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!
