Compotes and jams topped the list online, and I rather enjoyed the following recipe for vanilla ground cherry compote. I cut the sugar by half (reflected below), but may cut it by half again the next time I make compote as this first batch was still rather sweet. I also cut the amount of vanilla by half and was happy with the resulting taste. Although you start with four cups of ground cherries you only end up with a cup and a half or two, so if you're planning on canning the end product you might want to make much larger amounts. Enjoy!
Ground Cherry Compote
4 cups of ground cherries
1/2 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of lemon juice
1) Lord, bless!
2) Rinse the ground cherries, mash them lightly, and put in a pot with the sugar and lemon juice.
3) Heat the ground cherry mixture to a strong boil and then simmer for 20 to 25 minutes until the compote has become syrupy.
4) Remove the compote from heat, add the vanilla, and place in sterilized jars for storage.
5) Serve on toast or with strong black tea and enjoy!
