Use vegetable peeler or small paring knife to remove thin brown skin to reveal white interior. Cut jicama in half and place, cut-side down, on a cutting board. Use a chef's knife or mandolin to cut jicama as desired.
Jicama is a relative of the potato that is commonly used in Latin dishes. A versatile vegetable, jicama can be enjoyed raw or cooked. When eaten raw, it tastes a bit like an apple; when cooked, it takes on the flavor of the food it is accompanying. Add jicama to your cooking repertoire for a good source of fiber and an excellent source of vitamin C.
