Jicama as a Drink

Querencia | Mar 27, 2007 07:55 PM

The other night we visited neighbors who just returned from a gourmet tour of Mexico. They served a drink (cold, iced, tall glasses) made from dried jicama flowers they had brought back, a big bagful. It was a beautiful red, a little bit tart (I think our neighbor said she had put some honey in it). I shop all the time at Hispanic stores but don't remember ever seeing jicama flowers (probably now that I know they exist I will see them). Does anybody here know bout this drink? Is this the flower of the plant that produces the jicama we see in the produce department?
