  1. Heat oven to 425°F Cut turnips into 2 x 1/2-inch sticks. Place on a foil-lined jelly-roll pan. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt and chili powder. Toss with your hands to coat. Spread out in a single layer. Roast fries 30 minutes, turning halfway through cooking time for even browning. Serve immediately.

These were pretty good for turnips. I was able to get my neighbor's four year old to eat a few. We used ketchup as a dipping sauce but sour cream, cayenne and honey-dijon would have been better.

These were surprisingly good. I've only eaten turnips raw with a little salt so this was a nice surprise.
