  • About

The cape gooseberry or physalis, a native of Peru, is related to that other husky fruit from Mexico, the tomatillo. Funnily enough, they’re often called golden tomatoes in the USA and seem to be treated as a savoury item, whereas in the UK they’re seen as a fruit.

You can save time deep-frying the tortillas by buying corn chips, or you can bake tortillas in the oven as you would a crostini or crouton.
