    I just made some butternut squash chips - they were absolutely DELICIOUS (and believe me, this is SO not my "thing"!!).. better than the real thing in my opinion - AND 0 POINTS wooohooooo!!

    How exactly did you make them?!

    I made BNS wedges last week but it's wasn't very successful and I didn't like them much.

    Is BNS 0 points ??? I assumed it would have points, a bit like spuds!! :)

    If you have never tried it, I can really recommed it, mashed, boiled, its so yummy! ((makes mental note to get some)). ;)

    I made some last week and ended up eating one, letting my mum try one, and then giving the rest to the dogs. I thought they were horrible! :(

    easy to peel - just stand the bns on it's end and use a sharp knife all the way down (be careful!!) all the way round.. cut into chip shapes or wedges, shove in a baking tray dish, squirt with that better than butter spray stuff and bake for.. not sure - ages! you feel like you're getting a real treat, they're absolutely delicious and yet they are 0 POINTS!! :D

    Did they go crispy? My wedges didn't and I think that's why I didn't like them.

    Hey if you bake it in the oven whole for half an hour, the skin just falls off ands its so easy to cut. Then you can cut it, spray with oil and bake to make wedges. Or add to stock for soup, or whatever you fancy!!
