Tomatillo

Scientific Binomial Name: Physalis philadelphica

Tomatillo is a small spherical shaped berry of tomato family used as a vegetable. It was originated in Mexico and was cultivated by the Aztecs centuries before the Spanish explorers introduced it elsewhere. Binomially, the fruit is the member of Solanaceae or nightshade family of fruits and vegetables, which also includes tomato, ground-cherry, potato, eggplant, chili peppers etc. Its exquisite tart and sweet qualities make it one of the much sought-after ingredients in Central American sauce preparations.

Usage: To prepare, peel the husk by hand and wash them thoroughly in cold water to remove sticky residue from the surface. Fresh tomatillos can be used raw and cooked in recipes.
