Husk the ground cherries and add them to a saucepan.
Add the lemon juice and cook over low heat until the ground cherries have popped and released their juices. Give it a stir to break them up a bit.
Add the sugar and cook over medium heat until the jam thickens, about 15 minutes.
Pour into clean quarter pint mason jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace and store in the refrigerator or process in a water bath canner for 5 minutes.
