Maybe you’ve heard of beet chips before.. you can buy them pre-made in a bag or some restaurants serve them up as a side dish.. But I encourage you to grab a bunch of beets and make your own at home!!
Our early garden beets are ready to pick, we have a few more ready than we can eat for dinner.. and I’m not ready to can them yet this year… So I made them into Beet Chips – a super yummy alternative to potato chips!! Sweet and Salty, OMG!
Here’s what you need to make Beet Chips:
- Beets, washed/scrubbed green tops cut off but leave about 1/2 inch of the stems attached.
- Healthy Fat for Frying (click HERE for more information on which fats are healthy to fry with)
- Sea Salt (buy HERE)
- Mandoline to cut your beets in super thin slices (buy HERE)
In a skillet with sides or pot, heat your frying fat over medium/high heat to 350.. Slice your beet as thin as possible with your mandoline slicer….. Do you need a mandoline? Yes.. this one is CHEAP, buy it HERE and it works perfectly!
Fry your beet slices in small batches in your fat, stirring occasionally…. Your beets will still be red but will be crinkled/wrinkly.. remove them before they turn brown (that means they are too done).. Scoop out into a paper towel lined plate to drain, season with sea salt… Enjoy!!
