What a lovely thing to have a big bowl of ground cherries on the counter! Related to the gooseberry family they are sweet and pineapple-y when they burst in your mouth. When you can find them at your local market you must buy a pint.
Though many savy cooks will make preserves I just eat them. Pulling off the husk, like shelling a peanut, is satisfying. Fluid hand to mouth movement. Less calories. No fat. Vitamins.
Almost like popping M&M's.
