Even with this season’s high warmer temperatures, the growth and abundance of summer’s tomato and tomatillo harvest in Southern California’s home gardens is at its best.
Tomatillo means “little tomato” in Spanish. These firm, green globes grow packaged in an inedible, husk like material. Also known as husk tomato, ground or husk cherry, Mexican tomato and green tomato. These green tomatoes are not the same as unripe green tomatoes.
The tomatillo is a common ingredient in Latin American green sauces and salsas. They are fantastic as a base for taquitos!
My next post will feature these vibrant and flavorful garden fresh tomatoes.
