tip TIP

TIP: Jicama, pronounced Hick-a-ma. Also known as a Mexican water chestnut. Jicama has crisp white flesh, the texture of a potato and the taste of an apple. You can find jicama in most grocery stores next to the coconuts, plantains, lemons and limes. Look for firm, round tubers, and store in a cool, dark place for up to 1 month; refrigerate after cutting. Wash jicama like potatoes. To slice, cut off the top and bottom to make a flat surface, and then peel with a vegetable peeler or paring knife.
