Green Tomatillos (aka husk tomatoes, jamberries, Mexican green tomatoes) look like green tomatoes wrapped in dry leaf husks, but are not actually tomatoes. Their citrusy, herby zing is prized in Mexican cooking.
Do not remove the leafy husks from tomatillos until you're ready to use them. Store in a paper bag in your refrigerator or freeze for long term storage.
Up to several weeks in the refrigerator, several months frozen.
RECIPES & TIPS
Peel and discard the leaf husks, then either finely chop the tomatillos raw or roast/simmer them.
Tomatillos are delicious in salsa, soups and guacamole, and can also be blended with other ingredients like chilies and fresh cilantro for a delicious sauce often used on enchiladas and grilled meats (like flank and skirt steaks).
