I picked a couple of tomatilloes, I'm not sure when they are ripe, but their little paper cases had split and the green shininess was peeping through.
So being someone who never likes to resist a temptation, I tried one. And it was surprisingly pleasant, firm like a slightly underripe tomato, but with a limey/lemony taste.
I will try leaving a few a bit longer to see if the taste changes. I'm told they are good in salsas, but I rarely make tex-mex (I like it but my sister lived in tex-mex land for a lot of years and got fed up with it ??! and husband can't take spicy foods), so I am going to have to think of other uses for them. Chutney might work.
