Spiced Ground Cherry Jam


The transition from light summer frocks to fall sweaters can be disheartening. Make it easier on yourself with this ground cherry jam without pectin with hints of citrus and ginger, a perfect ode to fall.

INGREDIENTS Ground cherries Sugar Lemon juice and zest of Lime juice Knob of ginger  Anise  Pinch salt  2 pint-sized jars


Combine ground cherries, sugar, lemon zest, and the citrus juice in a large, heavy-bottomed pot. Bring pot to a boil, stirring occasionally. Lower heat to medium and continue simmering until all the ground cherries have burst and dissolved.


In the last 10 minutes, add whole star anise and ground ginger to pot. Remove pot from heat.


Very carefully (and preferably using a ladle), pour jam into clean, prepared (and sterilized, if canning) jars. Wipe the rims with a wet towel.
