As ideas bounced around my brain today, I happened across the notion of making candy cane flavored candy cane beets. The idea is to thinly slice candy cane beets and infuse them in a warm peppermint syrup. The thin slices of beet will then be dried in a low oven or a dehydrator. The result should be a crisp candy cane striped and flavored beet. I guess we could do this with red beets as well to make a burgundy mint. In fact, we could use the burgundy beets and grind them to make mint crumbs. And then we could ask ourselves what other flavors would work well being infused in beets?
