Buying Tomatillos

Look for: tomatillos that are firm, dry, hard and tightly attached to their husks.

Avoid: tomatillos that are moldy, soft, yellow or sticky.

Seasonality: Summer and early fall

Storing Tomatillos

Refrigerate tomatillos in a paper bag up to 1 month.

Preparing Tomatillos

Tomatillos may ripen to yellow but are better used when green. Before cooking or eating tomatillos, pull off the papery husks by hand, then wash by swishing in a bowl of cold water to remove the sticky coating.
