Beet Fail

Beet Fail

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.
