Just tried jicama

Soooo, I've heard about jicama but never encountered it. Last week I found them in the supermarket near the garlic and ginger, and it wasn't terribly expensive.

I looked for recipes, but didn't find much other than "throw it in a salad". Tonight I decided to try tasting. Even raw, it's yummy! I'd heard it described as apple/potato, but it was just like a firm unsweet apple. Would probably be a nice side to pork.

Does anyone else use jicama? What do you do with it?
