Tomatillos (tohm-ah-TEE-ohs) are from the same family as tomatoes but are very different. They are green with a flavor that hints of lemon and apples. Tomatillos have a thick skin with a papery covering and a firm texture much like a green tomato.
*Small green tomatoes can be substituted.
Open dry husks and pull up toward top of tomatillo. Pull or cut with paring knife to remove husks and stems.
Rinse tomatillo; rub gently to remove sticky film. Cut as desired.
