Jicama Home Fries

Ingredients
1 lb jicama, peeled, halved and diced
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 tbsp ghee
2 tbsp ghee
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup parsley, chopped

Directions
Place the jicama and salt into a slow cooker and add enough water to cover the jicama about two inches. Cook on high for 12-24 hours. The longer it simmers the more tender. When the jicama has finished its soak, drain, pat dry and place in the refrigerator until you're ready to start frying. Heat large skillet over medium-high heat about three minutes and add 1/2 tbsp ghee. Toss onion into the pan and saute, stirring often. Cook until nicely browned (8-10 minutes) and transfer onion to small bowl and return pan to heat. Add 2 tbsp ghee to the skillet and add jicama into a single layer. Cook without stirring until the jicama are golden brown on the bottom. Then flip jicama to make another single layer and repeat until the jicama is browned on most sides. When jicama is toasty add the onions, paprika, chili powder, salt and pepper to pan. Stir to blend them remove home fries, stir in parsley and serve immediately.
