Its hot here now, about 89 or so, 60 % humidity.
Time to take the CuisiSB outside and try some more beets:
I had 4 large beets, the largest I could find, from the same store as before. These trimmed nicely and were not fibrous. I washed them and trimmed off a little of the tops and bottoms and cut them in 1/2. Placed them in the CSB, 425 steam for 30 min. They needed a bit more time so I added 10 min.
The area where the Weber is is in the shade and the mosquitos were just waiting for me. About 1 PM. I get a delayed hypersensitivity reaction to eastern mosquitos so Im a bit paranoid about them. In my haste to clear the area I goofed when adding the last 10 min on the CSB. It ended up being just heat, no steam, my error.
The skin, because of this mistake, needed to be removed, but the beets were fine :
About 1 KG of very nice beets ready for some sort of further treatment. Its interesting that America’s Test Kitchen just did a show w beets made in a covered saute pan. These are much easier.
The pan, however, got a bit of a char w 425 x 10 min. I forgot to take a pic. Here however is the pan w a little water added to it and placed back in the CSB for 15 min on 425 steam. Steam Cleaned ! All those black plaques just floated off.
So, for me, w proper beet selection, its CuisiSB Beets !
