Do you ever get the jic-jic-jicama?

Native to Mexico, Central and South America, jicama has long been cultivated by Mesoamerican civilizations. Only the jicama root is edible; the rest of the plant is poisonous. Okay by us – we like to slice the apple-like flesh of the jicama root into matchsticks and toss it with chili powder and lime juice for a snack. How do you jicama?

    My favorite way to eat jicama is with fresh squeezed lime and a sprinkle of Tajin! Cut it up fresh and use instead of a chip with guacamole or salsa. Really, really good!
