Candied Beet Chips

Before publishing the post about the cake I have mentioned, here is the decoration of it, that is by the way is drying in my cold oven right now. As far as the cake is concerned, I have already finished two components of it, and soon the third is going to be made. I can already tell you, that it is going to be a "say goodbye to beet" cake, after all I have prepared plenty of meals with beet this winter, and I thought I should finish the set with something sweet. Though this doesn't necessarily means that beets will not be seen anymore this year. Anyhow, now let's see the recipe for candied beet chips.


260 g sugar
200 g water
1 beetroot

Peel beetroot and slice it thin with the help of a mandoline. If you want to make perfect rounds then use a cookie cutter for shaping. Bring water together with the sugar to the boil and as soon as the sugar has dissolved add the beet slices. Cook it over low heat until the slices are translucent. Drain carefully and sprinkle with sugar. Let it dry over night. The candied beet slices can be kept for a week in an airthight container.
