There’s no lazy gal shortcut when it comes to growing sprouts, it’s just straight up that easy that any old lazy gal can get to sproutin’ at home in no time flat.
What the heck is a jicama?
Ji-what-a? Pronounced hee-kah-ma, this hearty root veggie is also known as a yam bean. It is part of the legume family and grows on vines in Central American, South Asian, and the Caribbean. It has a rough brownish outside resembling a turnip, but once you peel off the skin, the inside is crisp and white like an apple. If you’ve never tasted jicama, imagine if an apple and a potato made a baby – not too sweet and just the right amount of crunch.
Spring is a time for many a fun thing, including but not limited to all the FOOD we get to enjoy that comes straight from home… good things grow in Ontario my friends. Two of such things: leeks and fiddleheads.
