Celeste's Tomatillo Sauce





Celeste and I found these beautiful tomatillos at the Farmer's Market. Here is her amazing tomatillo sauce recipe. I used about 30-35 tomatillos (one basket) to make it.

tomatillos, peeled and cut in half
one brown onion, cut into quarters
a couple whole cloves of garlic, peeled
kosher salt
fresh ground pepper
olive oil
1 cup cilantro leaves, chopped

Preheat oven to 375. Toss cut vegetables with salt, pepper, and olive oil and put into a roasting pan.
Roast for about 30-40 minutes until done.
Put roasted vegetables and cilantro leaves into a food processor (use the blade fitting), and process until veggies have a chunky sauce texture.

This is great as a dip with tortilla chips, and amazing in quesadillas and in scrambled eggs!

Another Reason To Grow Your Own

The Environmental Protection Agency gave the go-ahead for one-year use of a new agricultural pesticide Friday, saying its own scientific review overrides health concerns expressed by more than 50 chemists and other scientists.

Methyl iodide, also known as iodomethane, will be allowed to control soil pests "under highly restrictive provisions governing its use," the EPA said in a statement.

Because it's a fumagant, we can expect both air and groundwater poisoning, not to mention that they're using this crap on strawberry fields. The strawberry is one of nature's most porous fruits (this is why it is one of the most important foods to buy Organic Only. You can't wash the stuff off if it's inside.
