Tomatillos are also called husk tomatoes because they grow wrapped in a thin paper-like husk, and they look like small green tomatoes. Let’s be clear though – they are not tomatoes. They are denser, and have a unique bright, tart and fruity flavor which is well suited for making salsa. This recipe calls for roasting them – which deepens their flavor and lessens their tang, Tomatillos can also be eaten raw, grilled, or simmered. They are very prolific when grown in the garden.
