Not to be out shined by its potato cousin, this turnip can fry with the best of them!
Turnip Fries with Sweet Heat Sauce
4 large turnip roots, peeled and sliced in to a 1/4 x 1/4-inch strips (we used a chef’s knife, but you could use a mandoline or French fry slicer)
6 cups vegetable oil
¾ cup honey
¾ sour cream
¼ cup Sriracha sauce
Line a baking tray with paper towels and set aside.
For the Sweet Heat Sauce: In a small mixing bowl, stir together the honey, sour cream and Sriracha. Set aside.
In a dutch oven or deep sauce pan over medium-high heat, add oil and bring to 250 degrees F (use a thermometer to gauge the temperature). Working in batches, add the turnip fries to the oil and cook, stirring occasionally, until just soft (about 4 minutes). Remove with a spyder or slotted spoon and drain onto the paper towel lined baking tray. Turn heat to high and heat oil to 350 degrees F. Plunge the fries into the oil and cook until golden brown. Remove from oil, drain onto fresh paper towels and season with additional salt to taste. Serve hot with the Sweet Heat Sauce.
