[ Intro ] Beets are the rocks of the vegetable world, And just like rocks, they grow underground, and also just like rocks, if you apply enough heat, they become soft and edible. Now, you wanna wash the beets with around… 25% tenderness, 35% love, and 40% care, And 0% “I don’t give a care”. Cooking beets takes forever. If you don’t have forever, probably don’t make beets. Um, I’m gonna cook them a couple different ways. Um, oh, that’s already too small. Salt. I read that adding some vinegar and lemon keeps them from bleeding. I don’t know what that means, and I don’t know if it’s true. I probably should have cut those much smaller. *Choppity frickin’ chop* *Ploppity frackin’ plop* You wanna put them on some foil, and you wanna completely seal them, so that way they don’t lose moisture. Onion’s on 400(°F or 200°C). That’s gonna take around an hour. Gauging the ripeness of a beet is really, really tricky, But if you’ve got a hard, smooth wood surface, You can take the beet and give it a good roll, *Bowling sounds* And if you get a strike, Ohhh, this one’s still standing here, but probably ripe enough. Now if you’re power stroking, you have a decent approach, A good axis tilt and get, say, a fast eight or a baby split, you’re probably good to go. But if you threw a boomer with a late break point, hit the Jersey side and end up with a Greek church, Depending on the radius of gyration, you’re probably gonna wanna give those beets a couple more days. [Strained] Don’t hide. If you don’t wanna spend the money on a food processor, What you can do is go buy one, make your beet dip, Return the food processor, and just say, “I’m sorry, I just can’t use a food processor that’s all covered in beets like this one, and what kind of operation are you running here anyway?” If you don’t even wanna go buy a food processor, and you happen to get one of the early Armatron 5000 prototypes. What you can do is repurpose that, With just a couple hacks, and The mechanics of a food processor are exactly the same, Only this one works quite a bit more quickly, and, um, processes more evenly. I call it “The Food Processotron 2.7.” But it doesn’t come with the gloves, or the belt, or the knives, or the tape, or the coat-hanger. If the fork goes in relatively easily, they’re- they’re good. I made the mistake of not cutting off the stems first or the roots or whatever you call it. The whole thing’s a root, right? I don’t even know what its called. But… No regrets. You can kinda just scrape, and pinch, and peel them off. I’m sure there’s a technique for this, But the main difference I’m seeing here between the boiled and baked beets, Is that, you should really buy the pre-cooked ones, ‘Cause this is a huge waste of time, And just a big goddamn mess. I don’t recommend it. Ow. ‘K, quick taste test here. We got a boiled beet and a baked beet. Boiled. Whoa! Tastes like garbage. You can see the color, it’s just leeched right out of it. Bake your beets, if you wanna, maintain the flavor. I kinda poured all the flavor down the drain. Food processors work best if you cut your vegetables into the right size and shape, and for beets, that means cutting them into a 1 inch cube, A hexagonal prism, A moon-shaped pool, A pentabeet, or a “beet”box. Some of these aren’t the right size, so let’s hope it doesn’t jam. Yogurt or sour cream, Lemon, Clove of garlic, Salt, Horseradish. That takes a long time compared to the Food Processotron 2.7, but, y’know, sometimes it’s good to be patient. Damn, that is good. You know what? I made this before without the horseradish. I feel like that’s what it was missing. It’s, uh, more horseradical! Another way to go is: Beets, Bunch of lemon, More lemon, Tahini, Salt, Pepper pepper pepper, Garlic, And chickpeas. (Also some olive oil.) This is more of a hummus with beets, than it is a beet dip, but who’s keeping track?
