How do you eat these? What do you make with them?

I just remove the paper husk and eat them raw. They’re bite-size, crunchy, and a combination of sweet and tangy. I used to really love cherry tomatoes for eating directly from the garden, but now I love these pineapple tomatillos even more! When I grew ‘Toma Verde’ tomatillos I used those to make salsa verde, but the pineapple tomatillos are probably too sweet for that purpose.
