Jicama: Main Image

Preparation, Uses, & Tips

Wash and peel just before using, as the flesh darkens when exposed to air. Add sliced or grated jicama to salads, or cut it in cubes and serve it with a squeeze of lime juice and a dusting of chili powder. It’s a good substitute for water chestnuts in stir-fry dishes.
