"Ever wonder what to do when you have too much jicama?
Here's a quick guide to making a quick snack. Best served with barbeque sauce. The stripes on the fries are caused by the moisture escaping the jicama and creating fissures where the starch from the jicama collects and browns." — Darren H

French fry-sized pieces of jicama
Thank you for sharing the recipe, I thought they were really good.
I had never tried Jicama, so I made 3 recipes that I found, and this was
my favorite. I added some pam spray and sea salt at the end and they were great.
Had a ton of jicama left over and when I found this recipe, I thought, "What do I have to lose?" I followed the recipe exactly, microwaved it 4 minutes to start, then checked at 2 minute intervals. I squirted a little cooking spray on the "fries" after they were done, and lightly salted them. The fish I served them with had a nice tomato-ey sauce, and this really made the "fries" yummy. So maybe ketchup would not be amiss. I will definitely make again when I have jicama left over.
My first experience with Jicama and it was awesome. I added a little sea salt.
