I have found good jicama at Whole Foods, it is not very convenient to where I live or work though.  I think I am going to try the Farmer's Market this weekend.

Welcome country girl! Make sure you follow my instructions to soften up the jicama, and if you can't find jicama cauliflower works well too!Where are you from?If I can help just let me know :)

I'm experimenting and it's probably been done already but what the heck ;D. I took my crock pot cut up my jicama into potato salad pieces last night put it on low and let it go waiting for it to cool now. Still a little crunchy but not to bad.

Well, I brought it to work with me. I made it here gave it a try. It was a little crunchy. I think if I let it go longer it might do the trick. Jicama takes a while no matter how ya do it. I'm going to try BBQ next.

Jicama now at my regular Wal-Mart so no special trips to Whole Foods for that anymore!  Now if only they would get some xylitol and almond flour.....

If your walmart carries NOW brand vitamins in the pharmacy they can order the NOW Xylitol ;)

The Walmart in the next town over from here carries almond flour, but the one in my town does not. I found it at Ingles. I wonder if you ask your Walmart manager to order it if he can get it because some Walmarts do sell it. It should be in their warehouse and/or ordering system.

You got it owensmath.And if your ingalls carries Bobs red mill flours they can order any Bobs red mill products, or they will put you in touch with the vendor who stocks the store and he will stock it for you. ;)

I live in a little village called Redgranite, Wisconsin. Even though there is a Mexican store  here, they do not carry any jicamas. So I will use cauliflower. Thanks Umpa

Thank you umpa and Doug you guys are the greatest. I am on the search for the jicama and until I find it I will settle for the cauliflower.
