It's turnip time! Take advantage of turnip's peak season, and serve up Garlicky Turnip Fries with Pomegranate Ketchup.

How to Make It

Place 2 baking sheets in oven. Preheat oven to 450°. Combine pomegranate arils, shallots, and vinegar in a mini food processor; process until blended. Strain through a sieve into a saucepan; discard solids. Stir in sugar, tomato paste, and salt. Simmer 10 minutes. Cut turnips into 1/2-inch matchsticks; toss with olive oil. Toss with cornmeal, Parmesan cheese, and garlic salt; divide turnip mixture between preheated pans. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes. Turn turnips over; rotate pans. Bake 8 minutes or until browned.
