Benefits of Beet Powder


Description

Here’s how to make homemade beet powder in your kitchen.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 pound fresh whole red beets, scrubbed well and patted dry (about 4 medium sized beets)

Instructions

  1. Use a sharp knife to cut off the tops and bottoms of the beets.
  2. Then, use a mandolin or your knife to slice the beets thinly.
  3. Place the beet slices on two baking sheets, trying not to overlap the slices. You can also put them on dehydrator trays.
  4. Then, bake or dehydrate the beets at 180°F, or on your oven’s lowest setting. It may take up to 24 hours to get the beet slices completely dried out.
  5. Then, place the dried beet slices into the bowl of a food processor fitted with the S blade. Process on high for about 30-45 seconds, or until the beet slices have transformed into a fine beet powder.
  6. Transfer the beet powder to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to several months.

Notes

  1. As beets tend to stain, you may wish to wear plastic gloves when working with fresh beets.
