I was just curious as to how many of you know what ground cherries are. In French they are called cerises de terre. What they are is little tiny berries that are inside little lanterns. You peel off the papery lantern part and inside is a little berry about as big as a gooseberry. My grandmother and aunts used to make a compote out of them so I tried too and it is so good. I put it over plain yogurt or ice cream and it is delicious. I cook them with some sugar, lemon juice and a vanilla pod. They are very popular in Quebec but hardly at all here in Ontario.
