We all have them. Good or bad, we all do. To a Southerner all you have to say is “fried green tomatoes” and they will get a nostalgic smile on their face and their minds go back. In my case, way back. Northerners have had a taste of this alternate way of cooking tomatoes and enjoy their slightly tart taste. I feel that this dish was probably created out of necessity. Families were starving and food was needed immediately. The tomatoes were picked from the vine while still green and used NOW. As many things do, a taste was developed and a love born for this concoction. I do love fried green tomatoes. Start with a few green tomatoes. A little salt and pepper, a light dusting of flour and cornmeal and lightly fried in about an inch of canola oil. Mmmmm…….
Drain onto paper towels after they cook to a nice golden brown.
It doesn’t take a whole lot of tomatoes to have for a dinner. They can be stored in the fridge and warmed up later.
Fry some up and make a memory.
