Tomatillos look like small green tomatoes covered with a papery husk.  Tomatillo_01_cropped.jpg
However, they are only distant relatives!  They are members of the nightshade family as are peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, and eggplant.

Tomatillos are native to Mexico where they have been grown for many centuries; They have a bright, citrusy flavor perfect with spicy food or grilled items.  As they ripen, the fruit grows to fill the husk and are ready for harvest in late summer and into fall.  They have the most flavor when they are green, prior to turning yellow, reddish or purple.  A traditional ingredient in Mexican cooking, they are used for stews, moles, and salsa.

Storage: Tomatillos can be stored briefly at room temperature or for up to a week wrapped loosely in plastic in the refridgerator.
