Thanks so much for the recipe Broken
I printed it too.... I have never grown Tomatillo's but all of a sudden I am hearing a lot of buzz about it. I love Salsa Verde!! I would love to swap out some seed with you for the giant tomatillo's. PM me if you think we could do business.

I'll probably give it a try as a bigger tomatillo is always nice.
Oh yeah...It appears I am senile. I did mean Burpee and not Burgess. Darn...somedays I just should refrain from typing anythign!

Hey, no problem, I eventually found it.

I have the same problems with names sometimes. It will be on the tip of my tongue but I will draw a blank. That's why I make up a cheat sheet for when I'm at the markets so I can look up things when I have a brain fart.

Default Brokenbar is correct

Realize this is a late post- but I agree- I have canned salsa verde and the vinegar in the recipe really changes the taste. Good to know that lime juice is an option.
