Sad to say my dehydrated beet salvage did not work. To get you up to speed, I bought an organic beet two days ago. I tried to dehydrate it to make crispy beet chips. They were teeth-breakingly tough.
Then, I read a recipe where they dehydrated vegetables and chopped them up to make a crunch salad topping.
So I put all of the dried vegetables together.
And I chopped them in a blender.
It looks like potpourri but it’s not. Although the ingredients of this vegetable potpourri are completely edible they are actually completely inedible. Again, you would break a tooth if you chomped down on this. So I whirled it around some more thinking I would make a powdered seasoning to spark up a salad.
The results? It did not taste good at all and the texture turned to sticky mush when you ate it.
I will call this Beet Fail.
But wait…what if I put the powder in hot water to be used as a dehydrated soup mix???? That could work. Realistically though I would imagine it would taste best if starving in an apocalypse. You can see I don’t hold out much hope for my creation.
Tune in at 5:00 tonight for my zippered pouch giveaway. This is very exciting to me. I have never had a giveaway on the blog and it is fun! Definitely something to do more of in the future.
