Hey guys! As I type, I'm enjoying a bowlful of cubed jicama with lemon juice and chili powder. It's a fabulous treat for these hot summer days, if you chill it a bit before eating. It's a very common thing to eat here in Mexico, so this got me wondering.. how many of you have tried it? Does this grow in your countries? It's not exactly a fruit; It's more related to potatoes really but you can eat it raw just by peeling the skin off (just like a tatoe!), chopping and adding either lemon juice and chili powder (my favourite way), or dipping them like you do carrots and celery. It's very juicy and has a subtle sweet taste to it, kinda like apples in texture as well. I googled it and it's called yam bean in english. What do y'all think??
