In Search of Jicama

The Frederick News Post food section had an article about Jicama this morning called “In search of Jicama“.  I love Jicama.  It’s kind of like a large crispy, sweeter, water chestnut if you’ve never had it.  We have a recipe for jicama-watercress salad that is a must have with paella.  In fact I can’t have one without the other.  The problem is I am almost always in search of jicama too.  I can’t find it anywhere with regularity even though it’s in season late fall to spring.  Anyone have any tips?

  1. I think you can get it at the Giant on 40.

  2. Try speaking directly with the produce manager at your local Giant Eagle store. They should be able to order it no problem for you. If you keep requesting it, they might just make it a regular store item.
