Sorry, jicama, but I didn’t recognize you in the store and I made fun of you. Identifying someone by their exterior physical characteristics is never acceptable, especially if you imply that that physical trait sums up the totality of their existence. I’m sorry! I should know better than to judge a vegetable by its outer appearance. I’ll try to be more sensitive next time. Would it help if I told you that I have enjoyed you many times in restaurants, but never knew that I could buy and prepare you myself at home? From now on I will enjoy you at home AND in restaurants!
Does anyone have any jicama experience they’d like to share?
