Tomatillo Salsa Verde

I picked the last of my tomatillos a couple of weeks ago and I used the whole crop to make salsa verde which I have then used to make other dishes. Tomatillos are one of those veg that you can't get in the supermarket in England and so far as I know can't get fresh at all, they are fun to grow, but kind of grow humungous and they make awesome salsa.

Tomatillo Salsa Verde (from Riverford)
(Serves about 4)

400g tomatillos, husks removed and rinsed well
1 small red onion, finely chopped
1 small garlic clove
1-2 chillies
zest and juice 1 lime
1 tsp brown sugar
20g fresh coriander, chopped
sea salt

Bring a pan of water to the boil and add the tomatillos, cook for 5 mins. Drain and set aside.

Put the finely diced onion, juice and zest of the lime and the sugar into a bowl and mix, and leave to sit for 30 mins.

Meanwhile pulse the tomatillos, garlic and chilli in a food processor with a dash of water until roughly chopped.

Mix the onion into the tomatillo and add the coriander. Serve with tortilla chips.
