Summer's coming - bring on the Fried Green Tomatoes
This of course is a summer recipe because at current grocery store prices for tomatoes, I would never buy green ones to make fried green tomatoes. One takes a few green tomatoes out of the home garden and saves a lot of $$$. For those who never had them, they are kind of thing country people eat and they are a tiny bit sour. How much might depend on the variety of tomatoes or how green they are. I like them to be deep green just before they start to turn red.
Now this might sound like a really simple recipe, but I include it here, because I never thought to do this. My relatives dip cut slices of tomatoes in white flour and fry them in a well greased pan. Most Black people I know fry them dipped in corn meal.
But the BEST way is to fry them in half corn meal and half flour.
Fried Green Tomatoes
Slice about 1/4 inch thick, mix 1/2 up each corn meal and white flour. Dip tomato slices in it, both sides, fry until desired degree of doneness, turning halfway through to lightly brown both sides.
