RECIPE: Curried Pineapple Tomatillo Chutney

RECIPE: Curried Pineapple Tomatillo Chutney #sauce #groundcherry

My neighbor gifted me a bag of pineapple tomatillos (also called ‘ground cherries’) from her garden this week, so I decided use them up and make something delicious. After doing a bit of research (you can make pies, jam, salsa, etc. with these little guys), I settled on making a batch of chutney. This was my first attempt at making chutney and boy did it turn out delicious!

Now a little more about the pineapple tomatillo (ie. ground cherry)- they grow much like a regular tomatillo in that they form lantern husks with the fruit inside. They’re about the size of a cherry tomato and taste sweet, much like pineapple. You can literally eat these fresh off the vine and they taste like candy!
