The Tomatillo, also known as Mexican husk tomato, is a plant of nightshade family bearing small and green fruit of the same name. A staple of Mexican Cuisine, they are eaten raw or cooked in a variety of dishes, particularly Salsa. Tomatillos have a high pectin content. They are the key ingredient in fresh and cooked Mexican and Central American Green sauces.
