Picture: Underside view of a tomatillo bud hanging from a plant.
I picked and ate my first tomatillo yesterday. Having never grown my own before, I wasn’t quite sure if it was ripe yet (how do you tell if a green fruit is ripe?). It tasted both sweet and salty. Different, but not unpleasant.
Soon enough, I will have enough of a harvest to make some salsa verde. Do any of you have a favorite recipe to share?
