  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 Tablespoon warm water
  • 2 ears sweet corn, shucked, grilled or charred, and cut off the cobs
  • 1 pint fresh ground cherries, husks removed and well washed
  • 1 pint blueberries, raspberries or blackberries
  • ¼ cup toasted sunflower seeds
  • Pinch of coarse sea salt
  • Yogurt, ice cream or pound cake for serving


Mix the honey and water. Add a few of the ground cherries and crush with the back of a spoon. Stir to combine. Add the remaining ground cherries, grilled corn, and the blueberries. Spoon over the yogurt or dessert with the honey syrup, and sprinkle sunflower seeds and a small bit of sea salt over the top.
