Fried Green Tomatoes
Some of you may remember the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes", in which they introduced movie goers to a Southern delight of fried green tomatoes. As I spent much of my childhood years in the South I had already enjoyed the taste of fried green tomatoes for many years. So here is a recipe for the Southern style of fried green tomatoes.
2 - cups yellow cornmeal (white cornmeal does not work as well, it gets mushy)
5 - medium green tomatoes cut in 1/4 - to 3/8 -inch slices
1/2 - cup vegetable oil
Salt and black pepper
Put cornmeal in a baking dish or large flat plate.
Dip each tomato slice into cornmeal and pat gently until cornmeal covers the surface. Turn slice over and coat the other side.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add tomato slices and fry in one layer, without crowding, for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until until golden brown.
Drain on a paper towel and then place on a serving plate.
Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm.
