Vegetable of the month!
Pronounced hee-ka-mah, and common in Latin American cuisines, jicama is a root vegetable that looks like a beige turnip and tastes like a cross between turnip and pear. Look for small to medium ones with smooth, unblemished skin. It’s best served raw, so simply peel, slice and sprinkle with sea salt. We love it in jicama and prosciutto rolls and jicama, corn and pepper salad.
