While we had the canner out last Friday night, we went ahead and made Tomatillo Salsa again. My first attempt was just so-so. I had used red onions which turned the salsa a funny brown color. I also hadn't carefully read the directions on the recipe. I'd been working with tomatoes that you quarter and break down, so I quartered the tomatillos. Unfortunately they didn't break down very much and stayed in these pieces that are a little big for salsa.
So on the second attempt, my husband chopped the tomatillos in the food processor and we did the same for the onions. We used 3 pounds of tomatillos and ended up with 4 pints of salsa. The salsa is a little lemony because I ran out of lime juice and had to make up the difference with lemon juice to keep the acidity right. I'm sure we'll enjoy it just the same.
You'll find the recipe here.
