Fried Green Tomato's
Tomato's are upon us! Southern fried green tomatoes are crunchy, sweet, and tangy- crusty on the outside and tender on the inside. I first had these in the 70's in Virginia, served with a barbecued chicken leg and grits. When I made some for my parents, my dad (an avid gardener of tomato varieties) loved them! They make a great snack or side dish.

Ingredients (Serves 2 to 4)
2 large green tomatoes, sliced 1/3-inch thick
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
ground pepper to taste (optional)
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups flour
1 cup butter (use butter for best flavor, but optionally you can use vegetable oil)


1. Season tomato slices with salt, sugar and (optionally) ground black pepper. Let them sit for 10 minutes.
2. In a large bowl, blend together the white vinegar and milk.
3. Whisk the eggs into the blended milk and vinegar.
4. Give the tomato slices a good dunk in the milk & egg bowl, then pat them into the flour until nicely coated.
5. Melt 1/2 cup of butter (or oil) on medium high heat until a drop of water sizzles when dropped in the pan.
6. Fry the tomato slices 5-6 minutes on both sides until golden, and place them on a serving plate lined with paper towel. Add more butter (or oil) as needed while frying.

Serve and enjoy!

Note from our website manager: If you find yourself overrun with ripe tomato's and aren't in the mood to can them, just toss them whole into a zip lock back and freeze them. You can use them later in soups, sauces and stews!
