Tomatillos look like small green tomatoes encased in a papery husk. They’re pleasantly tart, and principally used to make Mexican salsas, particularly salsa verde. They’re good raw, but many cooks cook them briefly in order to enhance their flavor. Tomatillos are closely related to tomatoes, though of a different genus. They are native to Mexico, where they are still grown extensively, particularly for salsas. The plant is an annual, which can grow quite large and is vine like in character. The papery husk (they are also known as ‘husk tomatoes’) is discarded prior to preparing the fruits for eating.
