Fried Green Tomatoes

Have any of you seen that movie "Fried Green Tomatoes"? It's a great book and they did a good job in transferring the story to film. Anyway, I thought I would share a good recipe for making aforementioned tomatoes. If any of you have gardens of your own you might give them a try!

(Southern Style)

1 cup cornmeal
½ cup flour
1 tablespoon sugar
Oil for frying
4 or 5 firm green tomatoes, sliced
Salt and pepper to taste

In a shallow bowl, mix together the cornmeal, flour and sugar. Dredge both sides of tomato in mixture. Press slices FIRMLY into the cornmeal mixture to make a good coating.

Add oil to heavy skillet until depth is ¼ inch. Heat over medium high heat. Fry a few slices at a time, about 2 minutes on each side.

When both sides are golden brown, remove and drain on paper towels. Season with salt and pepper and serve hot. Makes 4 servings. YUMMY!!

I love that movie!!! I have never had fried green tomatoes (even though I grew up in the South). I'll have to give these a try.
