Cook: 2 1/2 hours
1 lb. (2 - 4) raw beets
1/4 tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Spray two baking sheets with olive oil nonstick spray.
Using a mandoline slicer, cut beets into 1/8-inch-thick rounds.
Lay beet rounds on the sheets, evenly spaced.
Lightly mist with olive oil nonstick spray, and sprinkle with salt.
Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Carefully remove the baking sheets, and return them to the oven on the opposite racks. (No need to flip the chips.)
Bake until firm, shriveled, and dry to the touch, about another 1 hour and 15 minutes. (During the last 30 minutes of cook time, check on chips often, and remove those that are done.)
Let cool completely.
