Yeah well worth unfortunately you haven't squeezed and shipped for the masses that don't live in the frying pan. Personally I am fine with importing a little citrus instead of living in a climate where it will grow!



Adding more "real lime" juice helped it, actually. Maybe the tomatillos weren't quite as ripe, but I think I went way over on garlic. It was halfway to hummus I used to make. Not a bad flavor, probably great on crackers, but not tortilla chips. And thinking about that, it was good, just not right, now I want to roast some red peppers and make hummus.

I was referring to Lisa's comment on the high price of tomatillos not the citrus.

lol I forgot about that hummus plan, now I'm hungry for it for the 2nd time today...I'll have to remember to get some tahini, haven't made it in years. Not since I started canning peppers, for sure. Have to look into that, too, canning roasted peppers.


I may as well ask now. Worth, do you have inexpensive tahini in Texas? lol

I think there are some places in Austin that dont jack the price up.
One of which I go to if I am in the area.

Thank you. Glad to have them, and, being volunteers, they feel a bit like gifts.
