Jicama is a large bulb-shaped root vegetable native to Mexico and South America. Underneath its thin dry brown skin, jicama's color and texture is somewhere between that of a crisp apple and a water chestnut. With its mildly sweet flavor and crunch, it works like celery iin salads, sandwich fillings and soups.
