One of my favorite fruits/veggies is the tomatillo.
My advice? Try them as soon as possible.
Select tomatillos that are firm, green and about the size of a golf ball. Larger ones are fine, too, but I’ve found the smaller ones to be a little better.
You will probably see them in the produce department still in their papery husks. The husks are easy to peel back when you are selecting tomatillos to buy. When you get home, remove the husks and wash the tomatillos in running water to remove the sticky residue on the skin.
They can be used raw, broiled, boiled, or roasted.
My favorite recipes:
Tomatillo Serrano Chile Sauce
Creamy Tomatillo Dressing
Corn Chip Soup

Can you use tomatillos instead of green tomatos? As in fried green tomatos? Could you make fried tomatillos? Just wondering.
Crazy Clan of Celts–I’m not so sure on that…tomatillos are pretty small and different in flavor than green tomatoes. Give it a try. I’d love to know!
I love tomatillos! I use them in salsa and a variety of different dishes as well. :o)
