I tried making turnip fries the other day and they were horribly bitter. If am planning to fry them like french fries how long should I boil them in the salt, vinegar and lemon juice so that they don't get too mushy? I have never prepared turnips as a potato before.Thanks
First of all: you made me laugh because I misread the title as "Bitter Trump Fries"... :D
Secondly: if they're too bitter, there are a few things you can do by soaking them overnight in the fridge with water with one of the following:
- a dash of honey (take warm tap water and let it cool down after you've added the honey)
- a dash of lemon (or better: lime) juice
- a dash of gin
How much is "a dash"?
Well, for 500g / a pound of turnip: a coffee spoon or maximum 2 depending how bitter they taste raw.
