Pumpkin Chips: This recipe makes them super crispy


A delicious snack for the afternoon of the series

the preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees fan. Cut the pumpkin flesh into thin slices, even better planned.

  2. Toss the pumpkin slices with oil and a little lemon juice (optional) and season with spices as desired. Then spread them out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper so they don’t overlap and bake for 5-10 minutes.

  3. Reduce the heat to 140 degrees and continue to bake the fries for about 30 minutes. Either stick a wooden spoon in the oven door or open the oven door periodically to let the steam escape and dry out the chips. Turn the fries occasionally to prevent them from sticking to the parchment paper.
