Jicama If You’re Sicka-ma

You’ve gotta try these vegetables. Jicama is a prebiotic so you will get more good probiotics in these veggies. The prebiotics feed the good bacteria and you can watch them multiply and grow and get bubbly. Kids love to eat jicama for the orange flavor and the small size. These are wonderful for colds and flus, allergies, and whatever ails ya!

  • Peel and slice the jicama. It can be chunky or thinly sliced.
  • Place the jicama, orange zest and juice, and salt into your jars, adding equal amounts to each jar.
  • Add half of a culture packet (¼ teaspoon) into 1 cup of water and mix well. Divide and pour ¼ cup into each of your 4 jars. (Alternately, you can just use ¼ cup of Kefir Whey, divide and pour 1 tablespoon into each jar).
  • Fill each container with filtered water, leaving 1½ inches of headspace to let the jicama bubble and expand as it ferments.
  • Seal the container (airlock lid is optional) and let it sit on your kitchen counter, out of direct sunlight, for 3 days.
  • After 3 days, place in the fridge and enjoy!


Storage note: This can be kept in a covered airtight jar in the refrigerator for up to nine months.
