Crispy Turnip "Fries"


Delicious crispy turnip "fries." My daughters and I are on a low-carb diet and were looking for something to curb our French fry cravings. I've heard that turnips can be made into some great fries. I experimented with it and came up with this. You can add whatever spices you'd like.
