Hello all.

 

Can anyone guide me or share with me a few methods on how to extract beet sugar?

I want to do this with my family over the summer with organic red beets.

 

thank you.

Beet sugar is extracted from sugar beets, a type of extra sweet large white beet. I grew sugar beets once to try them in cooking, it was like eating pure white sugar, lol.

Some instructions [Here]

 

Red beets would be much lower yielding and your product would likely be pink or red. But the syrup would be an interesting organic food coloring, hmmm
