We've been counting down to thanksgiving all week. And now, it is done and gone. Now, we have the perennial age-old question, what to do with all of the leftover turkey. We eat the turkey, of course. Emeril, though, good enough to stop by, to tell lara, sam and myself, what to do with the turkey. And it's not just a sandwich. Take a look. So, what are we working on here first? You know what this is here? That's a -- this is called jicama. That's jicama. With a "j." Jicama. So, this is jicama. And basically, this is chyote. Or alligator pear.
