Ground Cherry Jam – 20/09/2012
You may already have noticed our enthusiasm for ground cherries. While some of our partners share this fervour and admit their pint of ground cherries rarely makes it home, others have confessed a lesser love of this unusual fruit, notwithstanding its evocative French moniker, “amour en cage.”
We discovered the following recipe in 2010; it’s since become a fall classic at the farm. It is easy to make in smaller or larger quantities provided you keep everything proportional. We use it as a jam or as a dessert coulis. It is absolutely delicious. We are convinced it will make ground cherry lovers appreciate the fruit even more; we also believe it may turn some not-so-ground cherry lovers into avid fans.
Makes 8 to 10 250 ml jarfuls
