One of them was a Fermented Tomatilla Salsa Verde. Here is my recipe. I had just picked up these fresh tomatilla’s at my local CSA down the street from where I love. It was in the height of the season for tomatoes and tomatillas’s in our area! It was so wonderful to highlight my recipes from the season!
