And since I've never grown tomatillos, I was surprised to find the fruit growing in little casings that remind me of paper lanterns! So cool!
First I had to remove the husks.
Afterwards, I dumped them into the food processor, oil, juices and all, added a couple of teaspoons of cumin and about a teaspoon or so of salt, a good handful of washed cilantro and the juice from 1/2 a lime.
After a good whir, I ended up with a wonderful, flavorful sauce that was perfect for dipping chips! I also took about half of it to add to my sour cream chicken enchilada recipe, YUM!
So hooray for tomatillos! You can bet I'm going to be enjoying A LOT of salsa verde this summer! :)
