Anonymous asked: Are you certain it's not spelled Hicama?
Here’s what I’m certain of, when it comes to jicama: It looks weird. It tastes weird. Most people haven’t even heard of it. No matter how you spell it, it sounds like you’ve got something caught in your windpipe. As far as the spelling goes, it definitely should be spelled with an H, but far as I can tell, it just plain isn’t. Go figure.
