For Gretchen! We've been having some fun with our Benriner!
« 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!!!  :-*

Wow. I can just imagine the potatoes being lovely.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

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,
