It's Easier Being Green Than You'd Think

So what does a Canadian city girl know about Tomatillos?

Well, she knows that when you mix them with onions, garlic, Jalapeno, cilantro and lime you get a really tasty Salsa Verde.

She knows a local farm that has them in season and ripe at the stand.

She knows that hiding in those fresh earthy smelling husks is a most surprisingly tart and tangy flavour.

She knows enough to keep her fingers away from her eyes until she's got that Jalapeno well and thoroughly out of sight and cleaned away.

And she highly suspects that the final result would taste pretty darn fantastic on her favourite Sometimes-Sunday-Mornings Huevos Rancheros (assuming there is any left by the time the weekend arrives again).
