Ground Cherry Chutney

Ingredients

  • 1.5 oz baby spinach
  • 1/3 cup ground cherries - husked
  • 1 apple - cored, chopped
  • 1 tsp acai powder
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

The one good thing about summer coming to a close? It’s ground cherry season! Ground cherries (aka husk cherries) are amazing little things. They look like small tomatillos on the outside, and like yellow cherry tomatoes under their husks. But, they taste like a combination of a mangos and pineapples. Incredible! The husk cherry is a member of the nightshade family (just like eggplants and tomatoes) and holds a lot of the same healthful properties as tomatoes.

Mangos and pineapples, oh my! Try the Mango Picante or the Apple Pineapple Express.
