- If you desire it to be extra crispy, broil on high for 5 minutes.

Boiling the jicama first isn’t a suggestion…it’s a MUST DO step that should not be skipped.
Because of the natural sweetness of jicama, be sure to add enough salt or other spices to give it a true french fry taste.
Place the jicama fries in a single layer on the baking tray, don’t overlap the pieces.
To freeze: follow steps for boiling and seasoning, then place in the freezer on a tray. Once frozen transfer to a Ziploc bag and place back in the freezer.
Don’t forget your dipping sauces: Sugar-Free BBQ Sauce, Sugar-Free Ketchup, Garlic Aioli, Chipotle Aioli.
If you choose to add turmeric to your keto fries, keep in mind that turmeric’s beautiful golden color has a tendency to stain everything that it touches including your fingers, and wooden utensils.
Turn jicama fries into chili cheese fries, loaded fries, or even parmesan truffle fries.
