The Ball Blue Book and Ball Home Preserving book have recipes for gooseberry jam.  Has anyone used ground cherries instead??  Is it ok to use??

 I called the Ball 1-800 number twice today but couldn't get through.

Guess not.  But it sure sounds like a wonderful idea for jam or ice cream topping.

I was hoping to make canned ground cherry jam for the Farmer's Market booth.  There are websites with recipes but you know about websites....so  I called the Ball people and the person said there is not an approved and safe recipe for canned ground cherries.  I asked the person to please check with those higher up.  She did and yesterday I received an email confirming there is not an approved method for canned ground cherries. 

Great.  I removed the husks and froze over a gallon of the little stinkers.  But there are other recipes for pies and other  goodies so I'll forget the canning part of it. 

I even checked the USDA site.  Nothing.  The person at Ball said to check with my extension service.  I'll be over there tomorrow so I plan to ask.  Don't expect anything but I'll follow through anyway..

They are also called Cape Gooseberries.  Can you find anything with that name?

I went round in circles with the person at Ball re: exactly what you said.  Well, when you look up the technical description cape gooseberries and ground cherries are not the same thing and the  USDA has them categorized separately.
