Michelle’s Tomatillo Salsa
I used fresh, pungent garlic from the garden so I used only one clove. Use two cloves if your garlic is medium-sized and from the grocery store. Serve with tortilla chips, enchiladas or burritos. Note: Tomatillos keep well at room temperature or in the fridge for several days to a couple weeks if you don’t get around to making this right away!

1 1/2 lbs tomatillos, or about a dozen small to medium-sized fruits
1/4 cup (very small) yellow onion
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded
1 large clove garlic, or two regular-sized
1 lime, juiced
1/2 cup cilantro leaves
1 tsp salt, or to taste
pinch sugar

  1. Heat broiler in oven. Remove husk from tomatillo and wash in warm water to remove sticky residue. Cut in half across the fruit and place on a baking sheet. Broil for approximately 10-12 minutes or until fruit begins to soften and shows some dark spots on the bottom but do not let it burn. Let cool for at least 5 minutes.
  2. In a food processor or blender, pulse the onion, jalapeno and garlic until finely chopped. Add tomatillos with any juice that accumulated on the pan. Add lime juice, cilantro and salt. Pulse a few more times until the mixture is mixed nicely but is not too fine that you can’t see the lovely bits of colour. Season with a pinch of sugar if desired and salt to taste.
