BLOOMINGTON BITES – BLACKBERRY, JICAMA & APPLE SALAD


Musical pairing – Englishman in New York by Sting

Alien Encounters: Jicama – There’s no doubt about it: Jicama¬†(HIH-kih-muh) can be quite intimidating. The large, brownish root, derived, Mark Bittman informs me, from a poisonous Central American vine, is very possibly as large as my head and devilishly tricky to peel. Not to mention the fact that the jicama will probably always be directly connected in my mind with the mysterious and slightly alien.
