Earth Eats: Salsa Verde With Fresh Tomatillos
Salsa Verde with Fresh Tomatillos
Chef Orr had another hot and flavorful dish on his mind when he collected a bunch of tomatillos from his garden. “It is called a ground cherry, or a husked tomato,” Chef explained. He has spoken about volunteers in the garden in past Earth Eats episodes, and tomatillos are certainly one such plant. “We haven’t planted tomatillo plants in 10-15 years and they are still going strong!”

I had never tasted a fresh tomatillo, and Chef gave me a sample straight from the vine. “It’s like a citrus melon,” he described.
