Tomatillo Salsa


While I am making another batch of the Sweet Potato Tomatillo Soup, this time to freeze it, I am trying to catch-up with posting recipes.

Here is another tomatillo inspired recipe: Tomatillo Salsa. Not only had I never made salsa before, I also had never made Tomatillo Salsa before. The recipe is super-simple to make. We took some to a Halloween Potluck and everybody liked it.


1 pound fresh tomatillos, husked, rinsed, and quartered
small piece of jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
1/2 large white onion, cut into 4 wedges
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/3 to 1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
salt, to taste

Coarsely purée tomatillos, jalapeno pepper, onion, garlic, and water in a blender. Transfer to a large heavy skillet, this is when I added the lemon juice (as I used a lemon cube). Simmer the mixture, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and cool to room temperature and salt to taste.
Make sure to chill and then enjoy with organic tortilla chips.

Note: We also jarred some of the hot salsa into canning jars for later use, see steps on how to can salsa below.
