Roasted Tomatillo Sauce

This year I finally had a good tomato crop. I grew mostly heriloom varieties and some tomatillos. Lots of cherry varieties too. This sauce could be all tomatillo or a combination of cherry tomatoes and tomatillos.

1.5 pounds tomatillos or a mixture of tomatillos and cherry tomatoes
2 cloves garlic
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded
handful of cilantro sprigs

Roast the tomatillos and tomatoes in the oven at 400 degrees for approximately 30-40 minutes until they are starting to brown and break down somewhat. You can also roast the garlic and jalapenos along with them if you desire. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Then add all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Yum! Serve over something : ) This would be great in a mexican dish or just over some fish.
