After some successful greenmarketing we made these quick sandwiches of Rappleree cheese, Persian cukes, purple radishes and grainy mustard on sourdough bread. For a flavor contrast we added a few groundcherries (also called "husk cherries") on the side.
Groundcherries come "individually wrapped," as you can see above - inside, they're delicious little yellow orbs with a texture like a tiny, firm tomato and a sweet flavor reminiscent of pineapple:
Unwrapped groundcherry with radish and cucumber for scale
They're only available at this time of year and we highly recommend them.
