It’s all smoke, nothing but smoke.
The Quester says that everything’s smoke.
When I find life giving me beets, I make beet chips. Sorry, no pictures; I didn’t think of it, and they’re gone now. Recipe:
Crumbled feta cheese
Peel the raw beets and slice them as thinly as possible (I use the thin slicer on my food processor).
Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lay out the sliced beets in a single layer on the foil. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle evenly with feta cheese, dried rosemary, and garlic salt. Place in the top rack of the oven and broil until the cheese begins to turn golden-brown and the beets have softened to edibility. (This is a nice way to eat beets, but they don’t tend to get actually crispy after broiling.)
