Roasted Tomatillo and Jalapeno Salsa


We tried growing tomatillos once years ago, but we didn’t know what we were getting into.  We thought we’d have tame, manageable plants, kind of like tomatoes. 

We were wrong.  The tomatillo plants grew huge and crazy, and since we’d planted them in front of shorter things, we ended up (gasp) yanking them out of the ground before they could produce anything.

I know.  Shameful.  But we were relative novices then, and skittish.  This year, armed with experience, confidence and more garden space, we tried again.
