If your CSA box has delivered you a giant, bulbous, turnip-like root that you can neither identify nor have a clue what to do with – it’s likely a jicama – and this radish/jicama ensemble is just the thing.
Jicama (pronounced hee-kuh-muh) – is a sweet root vegetable, whose flavour and crunchy, juicy texture is astonishingly apple-like. Packing a plethora of vitamins and minerals – particularly vitamin C – this root will even improve your digestion with its high count of prebiotic inulin fibers.
