Fried Green Tomatoes

Fried Green Tomatoes go back a long way in my family history.When we had too many tomatoes turning ripe red we will start picking the green ones and place them in the refrigerator until we got ready to fried them up. Keeping green tomatoes in the refrigerator will help keep them from turning red fast.



I like my Fried Green tomatoes half green and half red with a little batter on them. The batter gives the tomatoes a little more body. So when I eat them with other food on my plate, the fried green tomatoes can hold up and want tear a part.

  A great tip: season the tomatoes and set a side. this will bring out a great taste!!
