Physalis – Exploring new tastes

Never tried one of these before and you know curiosity must be fed I’ve seen them in few culinary shows used as decoration so had to find out how they taste and Hmm.. actually strange, they have a texture and look quite similar to tomato and taste something between strawberry and grape to me, a bit confusing when you try them for a first time.
Physalis or Ground cherries as they’re known in Europe aren’t very often seen on European markets but I had the chance to satisfy my curiosity.

Not sure I’m entranced by the taste but they are really beautiful looking and would make a nice reference for an artwork or piece of jewelry so I made few shots and may use them in some future some work.
I hope the New year started well for all of you, Happy Friday and take care!
