this jicama root surprised me with the delicate gradations of its coloration. i have associated jicama with bland, white, and slightly crunchy rectangles to be dipped into something creamy and eaten along with raw carrots, broccoli, and green beans at summer parties. i did not know it could impersonate phases of the moon rendered in rice paper.
