Tomatillos a green fruit with a dry leafy husk is different from a tomato but from the same family. The fruit is firm by slightly less sweet, with a bright, fresh taste. Once the husk is removed, tomatillos do not need to be peeled or seeded. The texture is firm when raw but turns soft when cooked. Fresh tomatillos are ready to harvest when the husks burst and must be rinsed before using. You can cook the fruit as you would a tomato - roasting, blanching or sautéing. They can also be grilled or braised with your favorite meats. Try this simple recipe so you can learn how to use tomatillos with your meals.
