Step 3

Sprinkle the cayenne pepper and some salt in and toss it some more. Then lay out the wedges onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Try to lay them out so that they’re not on top of each other so that they can cook evenly. Roast at 220’C for about 30 minutes until they’re nice and crispy. Give them a bit of a toss about half way through.
