What to do with Green Tomatoes

Last week, I wrote a post about what to do with all of your extra tomatoes.  I was talking about your ripe, red tomatoes.  One follower asked what she should do with all of her green tomatoes.  Well, that's easy.  Make fried green tomatoes!

Here's how.  First, you'll need to gather up the ingredients.  You'll need flour, corn meal, Season All (salt and pepper if you don't have this seasoning), milk, oil, and of course, green tomatoes (three nice sized ones).



1.  Heat enough vegetable oil in your frying pan to come up half way on the slices when they're in the pan.  Make sure the oil is really hot before you add the tomatoes.

2.  Slice your tomatoes thick.

3.  Mix 1 1/2 cups cornmeal with 4 tablespoons of flour and 2 Tablespoons of Season All

4.  Dip both sides of tomato slices in milk

5.  Coat both sides of tomato slices in meal mixture

6.  Fry those things in the oil.  I do it about 3-5 minutes each side. Turn only once.

7.  Take out and enjoy!

    1. They're a southern food. Where I live, they actually sell green tomatoes in the grocery store for just that purpose.

  2. I missed your ripe tomato post. Besides chard, it's the only thing in my garden that the wildlife doesn't chomp down.

  5. Haven't had fried green tomatoes in years. They are so good! You can also make green tomato salsa. I've done that in the past. Turned out pretty good.
