HOW TO USE THOSE ODD FARMER’S MARKET VEGES – JICAMA
Look for: From the outside, jicama looks similar in color, shape, and texture to a potato. It should feel heavy for its size in your hand and firm to the touch, without any bruises or blemishes, says Mottl.
Tastes: Like a water chestnut—crispy and refreshing; it has a unique and gentle sweetness that’s similar to but subtler than an Asian pear or apple.
Use it: It pairs well with bitter greens like radicchio and arugula, onions, and fruits such as citrus, mango, and fresh basil. “Eat it raw by cutting it into bite-sized cubes or thin strips, and adding to a salad with ingredients such as the above,” says Mottl. “It can also be peeled and cut and eaten as a snack just as you would carrots sticks.”
