The LA Pantry: Tomatillos.

When we moved back to LA from Asia, there were definitely some ingredients I was looking forward to being able to stock my kitchen with-- like ricotta, black beans, and (pictured left) tomatillos. Here in our corner Latin grocer they are sold in great big tumbling piles. These strange little fruits, with their paper lantern casing, help to create delicious green salsas, perfect for piling onto a taco. I also understand that you can try them raw (any suggestions on recipes?), which, now that I can get them easily once again, I'll have to try.

To give tomatillos a try, check out Bon Appetit's awesome tomato chipotle salsa.
