Natural candy from the garden: Physalis

Wow, what an exciting week I’ve had! The weekend arrived extremely quickly and now I’m just trying to catch my breath. Today I picked some of the homegrown physalis fruits that I planted in early summer. Perfect candy with no weird ingredients, just pure natural. If you’re feeling decadent you can of course dip them in melted chocolate….

    Oh, yum! I didn’t know that they were an annual – I thought they grew on a tree or something! We had them just a few weeks ago, and enjoyed them quite a lot.

    There’s something I’ve never bought (or grew) only has placed at the side of a desert in restaurants!

    Any ideas how to use them?

    DaviMack: In Sweden they are definitly an annual just like tomatoes. They are very hard to keep during winter.

    Scott: A physalis jam would be lovely, or a salsa!

    Gloria: Thank you!

    In New Zealand we call these Cape Gooseberries. My in-laws had a plant at their old house – ahhh sweet memories.

    Here in Hawaii they’re called poha and we make a very tasty jam from them.
