What a busy summer it has been, and early fall is proving to be not much different. Phew...I have had a number of posts to share, and somehow life has intervened.
Remember the post I did about the lovely lady whom I bought the garlic from? Then she gifted me with the most beautiful dried Oregano? Well, I called her the other day, asking if I could buy more garlic. (now I had a good stash!) She then gifted me with these amazing ground cherries: (by the way, I had a lot more than this picture shows... I could not stop eating them on the drive home!)
Here is a peak inside this deliciousness...see how pretty?:
Wow...what flavor. Ground cherries are related to Tomatillos. The flavor of ground cherries is complex: sweet, tart, hearty, spicy, herbaceous....hard to describe, but so unbelievably delicious. I bet these would make a great chutney or relish, or even pickled? My mind is whirling with possibilities!

This is what they look like sliced:
I added them to a layered fresh garden salad with a simple dressing....I sooo want more of these babies:
Thank you to my garlic, ground cherry growing friend...this was truly deliciousness on a plate! 🙂
