Yes, I just finished off the last of the first Jicama I tried this morning. It does have a little bit of a root taste but the initial flavor is sweet. They are very watery and have a good crunch to them. It has the same texture as the outer part of a watermelon. Yeah that is a little odd of a comparison but thats what it reminds me of. I really like it and hope to get more in the near future.
We often add it to salads and I like the subtle taste and crunch. It is also a good source of fiber and will add some Vitamin C to your diet.
I used to eat this when I was a kid, we could only get it in the winter at that time. I thought it tasted like fresh peas from the garden (Try it with your eyes closed!). Now it's in Safeway year round, but I just got back from a trip to Mexico and the fresh, seasonal Jicama there was so much more delicious. Couldn't get enough of it!
