My friend Natalie gave me a bag of tomatillos a few weeks back. And since I love salsa verde, I thought I'd make a batch.
It's actually pretty easy. You take the little paper husks off the fruit. The recipe called for 1 1/2 lbs and this was pretty close.
Cut tomatillos in half and place cut side down on a foil-lined baking sheet. Place under a broiler for about 5-7 minutes to lightly blacken the skin.
Dump into a food processor with a half a chopped onion, 1 tablespoon lime juice, 1/4 teaspoon sugar, 1 or 2 chopped jalapenos, salt to taste. Process till smooth.
Because I froze this stuff, I didn't add the 1/2 cup cilantro leaves the recipe called for. I'll add this just before I serve it.
And pour into jars and seal. Summer in a jar. Can't wait to crack one open with a tortilla chip in hand.
