Bird in Hand Farm

Bird in Hand Farm is an imaginary place.

I've heard of them.  I've never seen one.  I doubt I have ever eaten one.  Ten of them came in the box last week.

Do a web search on tomatillos and salsa verde comes up over and over.  The farmer chose a really simple one from All Recipes.

Green Salsa


  • 8 tomatillos, husked
  • 3 shallots - We used "bunching onions" from the CSA box
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green Chile peppers
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded
  • salt to taste
Chop everything to bits in a food processor.

This is so simple and very good.  We are eating it with chips but there are a ton of recipes where this would make a very nice addition.

It's a good thing we like them so much, because 33 more came in this week's box.

  1. I've seen them in salsa recipes - don't know how easy they are to grow or if they grow up here or not. More stuff to research.
