While tomatillos are relative newcomers on the Canadian food scene, they are an ancient Western Hemisphere crop – older, it is thought, than tomatoes – definitely older than the bright red tomato fruits that we’ve come to recognize on our tables.  They’re a staple of Mexican cuisine and commonly enjoyed by cultures throughout Central America.

Similar to tomatoes, they are members of the nightshade family.  On the vine, however, these sweet green fruits look nothing like their more famous cousins.  In fact, they look an awful lot more like their more closely related kin, the ground cherry.
