Fried Green Tomatoes: A Taste of Old New Orleans


A story begins with me going to a farmer's market and admiring green tomatoes. I love green color and everything green but there was something else about them: i didn't know how to cook them and it delighted me even more! I had something new to try! How happy i was to discover that Ben actually was pretty familiar with green tomatoes and he knew a super yummy recipe from his father! So we bought them, spiced them and fried them! 

Ingredients

    3-4 large green tomatoes
    1 cup yellow or white cornmeal
    1 cup all purpose flour
    1 teaspoon salt-or to taste
    1 teaspoon black pepper-or to taste
    1 teaspoon cayenne pepper-or to taste
    vegetable oil


How to make it

    Slice tomatoes to desired thickness.
    In a medium bowl combine cormeal, flour, salt, black pepper and cayenne peppper.
    Dip tomato slices into cornmeal mixture.
    Pour 1/4" to 1/2" of oil into a cast iron skillet. Heat over medium high heat to 350 degrees.
    Fry tomato slices for 2-3 minutes per side or until golden brown.
    Drain on paper towels.
    Serve hot. YESSS!!


Noone in my family has ever tasted it and oh yes they loved it! We have some more of spicy cornmeal left and we want to try it with zucchinies, peppers and other veggies.
