A couple of months ago I went for a walk downtown on my lunch break and
ended up at The Smorgasbord. I wandered and looked at the crafts from
10,000 Villages and all the delicious foods. I picked up some tea bags for
work was about to pay when I spotted the bags of beet chips.
I grabbed one for a work treat and headed out.
The next day after lunch I opened the bag and put a small handful on a plate
to snack on while I worked. 5 minutes later I went back for another
handful, and a few more after that. These things are awesome!
The bag lasted 2 days only because I showed Herculean willpower.
They are delicious AND a Canadian company - what`s not to love?
Visit them here.
Shortly after that Thistle Farms dropped us off a bunch of small beets. They sat for a week in the fridge, and then I decided to try to make homemade beet chips.
It was not completely successful. But the chips that did crisp up without being burned were quite delicious. I think my oven temperature was too high - perhaps slow and low is the way to go.
Thistle Farms has gifted us with more beets, so this is something I might be trying again.
