There's a New-to-Me Berry on the Block

A few weeks ago, I discovered these little golden-nuggets-of-yummy-ness, nestled in with the blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries at Save Mart. 
 They may look like yellow tomatoes, but they're pichuberries, a berry from the Peruvian Andes.

And they are dee-lish. They have a consistency kind of like a cherry tomato, and do have small, edible seeds, but are more firm and are both tart and sweet. Oh, and they're full of antioxidants, and have even been called the "diabetic berry," as they're thought to be very good for diabetics.

Found this article that has this recipe, and am looking forward to trying it.
Not a bad way to start summer.
