Ground Cherries, Yee Haw! Now what?

clepro | Apr 30, 201508:06 PM     6

I've good friends who have a lovely, exciting hobby farm in southern Minnesota. They're prolific vegetable gardeners, have put in fruit orchards, berry bushes, grape vines, etc., and I was lucky enough to spend many glorious hours in the gardens there last summer and during the harvest. The family includes a local James Beard award-winning chef, so they know food and little goes to waste, except...nothing's been done with the ground cherries. They've been in the freezer, tons of them I'm told, since last fall and were just offered to me. I'll be picking them up this weekend, and so am looking for your best and favorite recipes or other suggestions of how I might do them justice. Am interested in preserves, pies, chutneys or anything else that the frozen fruit would work well in. Thanks for any and all suggestions. Am also more than open to general guidance and advice regarding ground cherries, as I've not worked with them before.
