Physalis have tangy aromas that literally explode in the mouth.
They are low in sugar (less than 300 calories per 100 grams of fruit) and packed with vitamins and antioxidants.

Dried Physalis from Madagascar

Physalis are round fruits with an orange color whose texture is similar to that of raisins.

They have a sweet and fruity flavor that is a bit like mango.

They can be nibbled on their own or incorporated into culinary preparations or fruit salads.

They are also perfectly suitable for preparing mixed rums and are particularly associated with vanilla and cocoa.

Physalis are considered "super fruits" just like Goji berries.

They are full of trace elements and minerals as well as vitamins A, B and C.

They are very high in fiber and contain more than double that of plums for comparison.

They have anti-inflammatory properties, and help fight rheumatism.

For this purpose, it is possible to infuse dried physalis in boiling water and drink a few cups of it every day to benefit from their properties.
