We have a very limited amount of tomatillos available in our produce department! The tomatillo is also known as the Mexican husk tomato. The colour of the fruit is a beautiful bright green, which fades a bit once you cook them. Tomatillos have a slightly more acidic, slightly less sweet flavor than ripe and unripe tomatoes. Overall, the flavor is more vegetal and bright, and the interior texture is denser and less watery. Try this tomatillo salsa recipe by Marcus Nilsson.
