Wash and peel fresh beet roots and slice thinly. You can use a food processor to thinly and evenly slice the beetroot quickly.
Dry the slices in a food dehydrator, a convection oven on low heat, or in the sun covered with a net to keep insects from touching them.
You can now eat or store your homemade beetroot chips. :)
When you want to make fresh beetroot powder, take a few dried beetroot chips and grind them up finely in a powerful food processor, or in a coffe grinder like I do.
If you are having a hard time getting the powder fine enough for your use, like when you want to use your beetroot powder as a powdered blush, I've found that the best way is to grind with a coffee grinder until the powder starts to accumulate on the cover of the grinder. The powder that builds up on the cover should be very fine and perfect for cosmetic uses. You can easily remove it with a paintbrush.
Store the beetroot powder in an airtight container if possible to keep it fresher for longer.
