 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       lb           Tomatillos, husked & washed
    8       ea           Garlic cloves, peeled
    2       ea           Jalapeno chiles, stemmed and
                         -seeded if desired
    1       lg           Bunch cilantro, leaves only
      3/4   c            Water
    1       t            Salt
                         Pinch freshly ground pepper
 
   Preheat the broiler. Place the tomatillos, garlic and
   jalapenos on a baking tray and broil, turning
   frequently, until evenly charred, 15 minutes. (The
   trick to keeping the garlic from burning is to tuck it
   under the tomatoes.) Set aside to cool.
   
   Transfer the roasted ingredients to a food processor
   fitted with the metal blade.
   
   Add the cilantro and water and puree until smooth.
   
   Season with the salt and pepper and serve.
   
   Makes 2 1/2 cups.
   
   Store in the refrigerator 3-5 days or in the freezer
   for weeks.
