I tried to come up with a title for this using proper English, but I just couldn’t stop thinking that it was the most appropriate. I made the most bangin tomatillo salsa yesterday, and it’s not even funny! I used the recipe we had always followed at Cookies & Cream, but this time was just magical because the tomatillos, jalapeno, garlic–it was all home-grown!

Tomatillo Salsa

2 dozen tomatillos, husked and rinsed (less ripe are tangier, more ripe, sweeter)

1 small onion, diced or I have used shallots–delicious!

1 clove garlic, rough chopped

1 jalapeno, seeded & rough chopped

dash cumin

dash salt

Simmer the tomatillos for up to 5 minutes in below-rolling-boil water for up to 5 minutes, or until their colors ‘browns’ a bit. Err on the side of underdone, as overcooking will turn them to mush. Toss all other ingredients in a blender and add tomatillos last–their juice is what will bring it all together. Pulse briefly to incorporate. be careful when removing the lid as the hot ingredients will steam out. That’s it! So good and tangy! This salsa freezes well or can keep in the fridge up to about a week or so. Enjoy!
