Tomatillo Plants


Anonymous added on October 23, 2012 | Answered

I noticed after shelling Tomatillos that they are sticky. When washing them they foam. That stickiness is hard to get off. Are they safe? How much should I wash them before cooking with them?

Yes, the sticky film on the tomatillo is normal. Gently wipe down as much as you can when cleaning them. It's ok if it doesn't all come off. They're still prefectly safe to eat.
