Salsa Verde!

Yesterday we had our first tomatillo harvest--about 1/2 lb of fruit! We made salsa verde with them, using only ingredients from our garden.

Tomatillos, blackened in broiler
1 tiny serrano pepper
1 Joe E Parker pepper
cilantro

Yum! The salsa is very tangy (maybe some of the tomatillos weren't ripe enough) but delicious and a refreshing summer treat. We ate it with corn tortillas the tristan made from masa harina and water. They were delicious as well, and SO simple. Now if we could only find organic masa for a reasonable price...We used the standard supermarket version because the stuff they sell at the coop is something like $6 for a tiny 4-cup bag.
