    Hi, OK, so I have all the ingredients in the house and I plan on making this tomorrow to keep in my fridge when I get the urge to snack on something I probably shouldn’t. I’ve never had Jicama before and it seems like I should cook it. Can I just peel and eat it raw?

    Staying on the subject of watermelons, I think that you’ll find interesting a recipe that is a specialty in the Greek island of Milos, for a watermelon pie.
    I found it amazing how can you make a pie with a fruit that is 96% water.
    ‘Karpouzopita’ in Greek, this video is from the Elias Mamalakis tv show, ‘Mpoukia & Sychorio’ which roughly translates into ‘thanking God with every bite!’ Speaking about catchy titles! This episode was filmed in Milos, of course, but in Greek, I’m afraid. I believe it will give you an idea how this pie is made. About half of a small to medium watermelon, sugar, honey, ground cinnamon, olive oil and sesame seeds. About 45 min. in a 180 Celsius oven.
    This show was not only about cooking, but also of the history and culture of the different places and countries it visited.

    Put salt on all the fruit I eat……..brings out the flavor. This salads screams it’s summer. The jicama is a great addition.

    It was a big newsflash to me to put salt on watermelon. I like the big chunks you cut up too and the dash of lime. It’s kind of like a party in your mouth. Plus, I eat a lot of watermelon for me skin, I’ve read that it does wonders for your skin after a long day in the sun. Moreover, we do worm composting in our garden and they love watermelon so we always have a ton on hand. Thanks for sharing as always =)
