Four Star Finds: Cape Gooseberries

Now that the weather has cooled off a bit, I’ve been going to my local farmers market twice a week to buy fruits and veggies.  When a vendor gave me a cape gooseberry to sample, he said that I was in for a treat.  He was right-cape gooseberries are so tasty!

Related to tomatillos, cape gooseberries are also known as husked tomatoes.  After removing the outer husk, they can be added to a salad or are great eaten alone!
