Storage of Tomatillos

Tomatillos can be stored in the refrigerator for about 3 weeks. Wrap loosely in paper in a single layer or place in paper bag and keep in the coolest section of your refrigerator.


The easiest method is to remove the papery husks, clean and pop into freezer-weight zip lock bags. When you want to use them remove as many as you like and thaw.

The tomatillos can also be cleaned, sliced and frozen as well but because you are exposing more surface to the air there will be more vitamin loss as well as potential flavor loss.


Remove and discard the papery husks from the tomatillo, rinse, dry and use per your recipe. Tomatillos are not usually seeded prior to use.


**Kathy Normandeau recommends stuffing the tomatillos with a mixture of grated cheddar cheese, green onions, red ground chili powder, and cream cheese. Bake till cheese is melted and serve!**
