What is a tomatillo?


A tomatillo is a fruit, also called a Mexican green tomato. It is related to tomatoes and gooseberries. Tomatillos resemble small green tomatoes, but have a peppery husk. They have a lemony flavour with apple and herb overtones.

Recently I was told that tomatillos are good for diabetes. Blend four small tomatillos with eight ounces of water. Drink daily to lower blood sugar. I'm trying it. I hope it works for you. If you find more info on this please email me.
