Ground cherries? Ever eat 'em? Should I plant some this year?

Got a freebee packet with my seed order from Jung's last week, and I've neither seen nor tasted them. I have a little extra room, and was wondering if any of you have eaten them, or grown them?

From Wikipedia, and some of the garden forums, they sound like they might be fun to try, good for pies and jam. But I figured the Serious Eaters would tell me if they were really table-worthy, or a waste of time and effort.

Thanks!
