Good for turnips, but not quite the same feel as a normal potato fry.
Burned the sauce because our stove was broken and tried to do it in the microwave. The turnip fries weren't crispy, but I liked them as an in season alternative to fries, so I'm saving this recipe.
Made these with turnips from our Farm Share and they were fantastic! Didn't make the ketchup, just ate them plain. They have become a weekly staple at our house!
I thought this would be a new way to incorporate turnips into my menus given they are in season now. But I made the recipe as written and found them soggy and a bit bitter. But maybe that's how turnips taste and I just didn't like turnips? I was expecting crispy....and my pomegranate ketchup was more of a drippy sauce after 10 minutes and I didn't have time to cook it longer...
Made according to recipe and I like turnips. It was good but not super. The ketchup will take waaaaay longer than 10 minutes; that must be a typo. More like 4-6 hours of reducing the pomegranate juice mixture down before it's ketchupy consistency. It was a little heavy on shallot flavor as well, so a bit less shallot could be used.
I can certainly see how this would be enjoyable for those who like turnips. I had never tried one (at least not that I can recall) and wanted to try this out as an alternative to my usual recipe for oven baked garlic parmesan potatoes. The recipe is great - but I just wasn't a fan of the turnip taste. Otherwise, very easy preparation and cook time.
We used breadcrumbs instead of cornmeal because that's what we had in our pantry but they still turned out fantastic! These are a great accompaniment to any main dish and I think could be served plain or with any sauce.
