Jicama root

Jicama’s (มันแกว [mangaew] in thai) aren’t too common around Bangkok, but once in a while they come to the market. If you’ve never had jicama before, it’s a pretty bland root.  I believe they are much more common in South America.  Similar to a potato in texture, although more watery and a little sweeter.  The one’s I’ve had were eaten raw-just cut off the skin and eat.
