Several weeks ago the cafe at work was having a catering fare so we could sample the new items on their menu.  Someone was talking about the jicama that was in one of the salads.  I had never even heard of it, but have now purchased one a couple of times.  HyVee has them on sale this week.
This one is about 4 inches but they had them about double the size I picked up.  I peeled it like a potato and then cut into slices.  The texture is kind of like a radish or a kohlrabi but the flavor is sweeter.  They don't lose their crispness when stored in the frig for several days either.
