Peeled Tomatillo - 2 Lbs

Tomatillos are small, round, green fruits that are a staple in Mexican, Central American, and South American cuisine. Although they resemble green tomatoes, tomatillos are actually not tomatoes but rather a member of the nightshade family, related to tomatoes, potatoes, and peppers. The tomatillo fruit is usually covered in a papery husk which is removed before using.

Tomatillos have been cultivated for thousands of years for their unique flavor that is often used to make condiments, sauces, and stews. They have a tart and citrusy flavor which adds a distinct tanginess to dishes.

Tomatillos are mostly commonly used to make salsa verde, a vibrant and tangy green sauce. They can also be cooked and used in stews, soups, and other savory dishes. Tomatillos are often charred, roasted, or boiled to soften them before incorporating them into recipes. Fried tomatillos are a delicious alternative to fried green tomatoes.
