    I don't like Celeriac so now and then use a normal potato, washed cut into wedges and baked for 30 minutes, mmm enjoy yours

    I've never tried celeriac either, but I'd guess you do it the same as for oven chips - I cut the potato into wedges or chips, coat with olive or corn oil and bake in oven at 200c for about 25 minutes, turning over once. I do sweet potato chips the same way.
    Let us know what the celeriac chips are like. I might try them too.

    They were very very nice, I cut the celeriac into chip sized pieces then blanched for a min or two, drained the water off left them in the pan and added a small amount of rape seed oil and a good sprinkle of curry powder, gave them a thorough toss until they were well coated. They then went into the oven at 230 for 30 mins, will be having them again for sure.

    Sounds good. I'll get some celeriac next shopping trip and give that a try.

    You can also use swede or turnip if you're OK with those. I've also seen recipes for zucchini fries.

    I've done them like that before, except used lard and smoked paprika (and lots of salt!)

    You've got me there, I didn't admit to the salt.

    I just don't bother with chips any more. I like green beans and onion rings with my steaks. The small amount of bread on the onion rings is tolerable, and I get the 'taste' I always associate with chips and steak. I eat steak once a week as a treat, and because of that I splash out on a nice satisfying T-bone; enough to share with my Lady!
