How to make Spicy Jicama Pear Carrot
3/4 cup jicama juice
*about 1 cup chopped, peeled jicama
1/2 sweet ripe pear
*I used a bosc pear
2 medium carrots
*about 6" long and thin, the kind with the stems attached
1 tsp raw ginger
opt'l cayenne pepper on top
Peel the jicama, juice as much of it until you have about 3/4 cup of it.
Juice in 1/2 pear, 2 medium carrots, and the ginger.
Stir and serve.
This juice has a very unique flavor - dry and rooty with a hint of sweetness from the pear and carrots.
I added a nice sprinkling of cayenne on top to increase the spiciness.
