Salsa Verde: Green Tomatillo Salsa

Posted: 10/3/16

This wonderful canned
TOMATILLO SALSA, 
I found on Food.comhas been a big hit! 

My family and friends LOVE 
Green Tomatillo Salsa 
They've all wanted more or asked for the recipe! 

The ingredients smell absolutely divine, 
either chopped (fresh) and while simmering!
I talked my hubby into growing our own 
tomatillos, so I could put up my own.


Post Update: 11/12/16
I just harvested most of my tomatillos today, only leaving a few small stragglers still left on the vine. What's great about tomatillos, unlike tomatoes, they actually last a long time off the vine. 

Weeks earlier, I was able to collect some ripe ones before the temperatures had dropped. We'd cover the plants at night and uncovered them in the mornings. However, the weather has been warm and just beautiful for some time now.

I now have 4 lbs total. Three pounds picked for the recipe below and one pound, I will freeze whole for reserve, simply to add that fun flavor to some other recipes.
