Getting To Know Tomatillos

For a long time, I steered clear of tomatillos -- not because of an aversion, but I simply didn’t know what do with them. Tomatillos are in fact classified as a fruit (like tomatoes) and are a member of the nightshade family. They are wrapped in a papery husk, which, when removed, reveals a crab apple-sized green fruit that resembles a tomato. If you’ve had a green salsa or salsa verde, then you’ve had a tomatillo. Make the salsa: Remove the papery husks from the tomatillos.
