Taste test: Tomatillos

These green tomato-like oddities are something I’ve been dying to try. You might recognize them from salsa verde which is what gives it its green color, They actually taste nothing like a tomato and even are a bit crunchier than one. As for the taste, it’s like a semi-mild lemon with a tomato-like consistency. It’s veeeeery acidic and sour. I tried to cook it with some garlic and mushrooms, but it didn’t do much with the acidity. So, I would highly suggest to cook this with some other vegetables or even with beef. Any sort of “fatty” ingredients will help cut the acidity. Of course I will continue to experiment with this ingredient but until then do some experimenting on your own! Let me know what you think!
