I wrote previously about my family's participation in community sponsored agriculture. It has been a real learning experience. In this weekend's bag o' fruits and veggies were something called "ground cherries." I had never heard of them before. They have an unexpected texture and an unusual taste. We spent part of the morning eating them and trying to decide what they taste like. Mr. J said they tasted "brown." I thought it was a tomato / walnut mix. One website I found said tomato / pineapple taste blend. We manged to eat all of them without coming up with a satisfactory taste definition but it was an interesting way to pass the time and try out descriptive phrases.
