Ground Cherries

Last weekend I was introduced to this delightful fruit. Chef Mike Mustard of Epiphany Farms shared them with me!

Mike also gave me the greatest lesson about the manual settings for my new camera. The sepia image below was the result of that! Isn’t that just the coolest?

So what are these?? They are ground cherries. They parallel gooseberries apparently. You can tell they are ripe when they fall to the ground, thus their name. The fruit is surrounded by these amazing tomatillo like sleeves. They taste a bit like mango and pineapple combined. Very mild and very lovely.
