Today I went to collect the lovely tomatillos that our farmer friend Ailsa of Sillyflatt Fare, Flowers and Gatherings in Inverbervie, grows for us.
She was so busy on the farm that she hadn’t had a chance to pick them so I happily picked my own. Ailsa was impressed by my speedy picking ? I learnt these fruit picking skills back in Mexico when working as a teacher in the mountains, in a place popular for growing chiles. You will never know when you need skills again!
I can’t wait to turn these local tomatillos into my special green sauce which accompanies our goat or lamb dishes. Happy chef!
