We were given a Jicama by a hispanic friend, and had no idea how to prepare it. This was the only recipe we could find. It really turned out quite good. We didn't have sherry, so we substituted Marsallis wine instead. The only thing I would do differently is to use squeeze margarine instead of stick margarine pats on the top. In our pie, the margarine pooled together under the broiler, then hardened into solid chunks when the pie cooled.
