I got this from another website and haven't tried it yet, but it looks good!

1 med jicama
3 tbsp Splenda
Juice of 1 Lemon
1/2 - 3/4 cup water
3/4 - 1 tsp cinnamon

How to Prepare:

Peel jicama. Chop into 1/2 chunks. Place all ingredients into saucepan and cook over med heat till jicama is translucent. I was too impatient to wait and see if the jicama broke down like apples so I placed everything in the blender (food processor can be used) and blend to desired consistency*. More water may be needed.

Enjoy your "fruit"!

*Be careful when blending or processing hot foods.

Makes 8 servings. 4 grams of carbs per serving.

Nice idea. Thanks!

One could use stevia instead of Splenda for sweetening so as not to be ingesting chlorocarbons.
