6 to 10 hours COOK TIME
15 to 20 minutes PREP TIME


  • 4 medium beets
  • 1 large orange
  • 3 tablespoons (45 milliliters) honey
  • 1 pinch salt


  • Prepare the beets by peeling them, trimming the ends and slicing them on a mandolin set to 1/8 inch (3 millimeters).
  • Zest and juice the orange into a large mixing bowl, add the honey and salt, and mix well. Place the beet slices into the honey and orange mixture and toss gently with your hands until all the beet slices are evenly coated.
  • Arrange the beet slices on the dehydrator trays. Avoid overcrowding because air needs to circulate around them.
  • Dry at 125 degrees Fahrenheit (52 degrees Celsius) for 6 to 10 hours, rotating the trays a few times during dehydrating, until sticky and crisp. Store in an airtight container at room temperature

Avoid turning your hands beet red when preparing these by wearing a pair of disposable gloves. Try different varieties of beet for a nice mix of colors.
