Roasted Tomatillo Salsa Makes about 2.5 quarts

  • 2.5-3 pounds tomatillos, husks removed
  • 3 fresh jalapenos
  • 12 cloves peeled garlic
  • 1 large white onion, cut in eighths
  • 1 bunch (2 cups packed) cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • ½-1 cup lime juice

Place tomatillos and jalapenos in a baking pan (with sides), and place in a 425* oven for 15 minutes. Shake the pan occasionally so that all sides start to brown. Remove from oven and place all ingredients in a food processor or blender, and puree until all of the ingredients are chopped small. Place in jars and store for up to a week in the refrigerator.
