turnip chips
does anyone have any good suggestions for making turnip chips? the ones i have made turn out burnt on the outside, uncooked on the inside and shrink significantly. I even grew a load of turnips and kohl rabi this year so i could cut and oil and freeze them to have a ready supply to replace potato chips (fries for the u.s.a ers!) .or just a good recipe for roasting them ( they can be used to replace roast potatoes). thanks.

This is how I maker them.

Preheat oven to 400 to 425 degrees. Slice your turnips to desired thickness.Very thin is great.
( Here is where I put 3 T. of cream in the water , bring to a boil. Drop them in and cook for 3 minutes. Take out and drain. It takes out the bitterness.)

Put some olive oil and salt on them. Arrange on a cooking sheet. They will roast for about 20 to 25 minutes. Stir them as you go. Turn cookie sheet around a few times while cooking.

Do a small batch just to get an idea of how it works. When you have this down then you can add flavorings & spices.

Do you have a mandolin? It slices thinly.

Turnip & onions casserole is also a good recipe.

When you get the idea and how thick you want them. Then you can add spices to the chips before roasting.

I like to use my rubs ( that I use for BBQ)to coat them . Mine are made by McCormick in the US. Here are some of the flavors:

Molasses bacon
Smoky mesquite
Sweet & Spicy rub

I made some close to dorito spice.Just to give you an idea to make them yummy.

Thanks for the advice, I was wondering whether par boiling them first might help. I'll give your suggestions a try!!
