What is a tomatillo? The tomatillo is a plant of the nightshade family, related to the cape gooseberry. Baring small spherical green or green-purple fruit of the same name. Tomatillos originated in Mexico and are a staple of that country’s cuisine. Tomatillo are generally eaten fried, boiled, steamed or made into sauces or salsas. Tomatillos are the key ingredient in fresh and cooked Mexican and Central-American green sauces.

Tomatillos

The fruit should be firm and bright green to make fresh sauces. Tomatillos have a high pectin content, which makes them ideal for making into sauces because they will naturally thicken the sauce. The purple and red varieties have a slight sweetness, which makes them suitable for jams and preserves. Tomatillos can be found in most grocery stores in the produce department by the other ethnic foods.
