Notes

For crispier french fries, remove the jicama from the oven after about 10 minutes and then fry in hot oil until browned.
Radish or turnip can be used in place of the jicama and may not require boiling first.
(From Paula's Comment) These freeze really well. Just boil them for 5 minutes, cool them in an ice bath, then lay them out on clean towels until dry. Freeze on a cookie sheet then transfer to bags. You can then spritz them with oil and cook in the air fryer (or oven).
