Title: For Gretchen! We've been having some fun with our Benriner!
Post by: Ceejay on October 13, 2010, 09:52:07 am
You would think having just had the holidays that we'd have had plenty of time to play with our new prize... but somehow having 8 children in and out of the house meant we didn't get there!  :o  :P

So I made a point to take some time out on the weekend with a couple of friends and their children to amuse ourselves... and I can honestly say I recommend it!!  My friend's 13yo DD was quite taken with it and ended up spiralling at least 10 potatoes!  :D :D

After they were cut, we laid them out on trays and sprayed with EVOO and baked them in a hot oven with wonderful results... will have to get a photo of the finished product though.. we seem to have missed that bit!  :-))

Thanks Helene for a great competition!!!  :-*

Don't cry Gretchen, just think of the children and the fun they had making the spiral potatoes.

What fun you have had with your new toy. I am so happy  that the kids can enjoy it. Next time take a photo of  the finished product. I wonder if sweet potato would be as easy? Be interesting to mix them together for a great colour.

Helene is sure to have a new contest soon. Wonder what is next?

Cheers,
Gretchen
