I'm using diced jicama in a salad tomorrow. Can I prep ahead by peeling and dicing today or will it turn brown?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
No. But it is best to keep it moist. Otherwise the texture gets a little rubbery. Add a little water to the storage container and seal it well.

It doesn't turn brown. Yay! I make a veg snack that you can buy all over the streets of Mexico. Jicama, cucumber, bell pepper, salt and chipotles chili powder and lime juice. The lime juice is not to keep it from turning brown and gets squirted on just as we are about to eat it. I make it and eat it for days. Prep away!! :)
Thank you Susan!!
