"One of the nicest things in life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating."
~ Luciano Pavarotti
Fried Green Tomatoes
Yield: 4 servings
1 cups plain white corn meal
1 cup plain white flour
1 1/2 tablespoon salt
Pinch of black pepper
1/2 cup cooking oil
Combine flour and corn meal.
Wash the tomatoes and pat dry. Cut tomatoes in 1/4-inch slices. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Dip each slice in corn meal-flour mixture and lay aside on waxed paper.
Fry tomato slices until golden brown.
Drain on paper towels. Serve hot.
This recipe is very adaptable. Some prefer using all flour or all corn
meal. Some people prefer *green* tomatoes, others prefer slightly
pink tomatoes. Try serving with ranch dressing or sprinkling with garlic
powder before cooking.
