Tomatillos, sometimes called husk tomatoes, look like green, unripe tomatoes with a dry, leafy husk that wraps around the outside. Tomatillos have a slightly more acidic, slightly less sweet flavor than ripe and unripe tomatoes. Prepping a tomatillo is pretty straight forward. The husks can be easily removed with your hands and discarded. You’ll notice a sticky film on the surface, which will come off with a quick rinse under warm water. From there, decide what you want to do with them.
We're suckers for Fresh Tomatillo Salsa and it's super simple! Just throw Tomatillos, chopped Cilantro, seeded Jalapeno, a bit of Red Onion, a Garlic clove, Salt and Pepper into a blender, and blend until smooth! It's tangy and fresh, best paired with Neal Brothers Organic Classic Tortilla Chips.
