Roasted Tomatillo And Garlic Salsa

1 pound fresh tomatillos, husks removed
1 head garlic cloves, separated and peeled
3 fresh jalapeno peppers
1 bunch fresh cilantro
1/2 cup water, or as needed
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven's broiler. Arrange the whole cloves of garlic, tomatillos, and jalapenos on a baking sheet. Place under the broiler, and cook for a few minutes. Remove garlic cloves first, as soon as they are toasted, to avoid developing a bitter flavor.

Continue to roast jalapenos and tomatillos until evenly charred, turning occasionally. Set aside to cool. Don't remove the charred parts of the tomatillos or the peppers.

Place peppers and tomatillos in a blender with the garlic and cilantro. Add a little water to the mixture if necessary to facilitate blending. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Refrigerate until serving.

Salsa Tip: To make a thicker salsa, remove the seeds and juice from the tomatoes before preparing. You can also remove the extra liquid when boiling if you are using a recipe that requires simmering the salsa.
