Ground Cherry Jam with Ginger

My favorite way to use this ground cherry jam is to spoon it over greek yogurt.  It would also be delicious spread on hearty buttered toast, or served as part of a cheese platter with goat milk chèvre or manchego cheese.

Ground Cherry Jam
adapted from At the Immigrant's Table blog

1 1/2 pounds husked and washed ground cherries
1 cup organic sugar, or to taste.  If canning the jam, increase sugar to 2 1/2 cups.
juice and zest of one lemon
3-inch knob of ginger, grated
pinch of salt

Combine ground cherries, lemon juice and zest, and sugar in a small saucepan.  Bring to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer and cook for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add ginger to the pot and cook an additional 5 minutes.  Careful ladle the jam into clean jars.  Let cool completely, then place jars into refrigerator for 2 weeks, or in freezer for 6 months.
