Do you have those gorgeous golden ground cherries in your CSA basket? Do you have absolutely no idea what to do with them? We chop them into our salads and Ada eats them up by the pint-ful. But if you want to do something bit special, try this quick jam recipe.
It would go perfectly in place of blueberry in Brie Grilled Cheese!
GROUND CHERRY JAM
Makes what you see above -- in just 10 minutes!
What you'll need . . .
1 pint ground cherries, husks off
1 to 2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Splash lemon juice
// Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pot. Heat on medium until ground cherries plump. Then squash them down with a spatula, lower heat, and keep stirring occasionally for 10 minutes.
What's your favorite way to use ground cherries?
