First thing is to prep the tomatillos. To do that, remove the foreskin, er husk, and completely detach it from the fruit. You’ll notice the tomatillo is a bit tacky, so you’ll have to wash it well. I recommend a vegetable wash. When buying tomatillos, choose smaller ones as they will be sweeter and more flavorful. The husk or as I like to call it, the foreskin, indicates how fresh the tomatillo is. It should be greenish-brown, tight, and not shriveled or dried out. And the tomatillo should be firm. For storing, leave the husk on and store the fruit in a bag on the counter.
