So my tomato plant lasted until December and it finally died and it was choke full of tomatoes! So like a true frugal princess Parker and I picked off every tomato and put them up to be used. So the first thing we made was a country delight...Fried Green Tomatoes...what a wonderful way to use a green tomato. I got this recipe from a farmer a at the Bryan College Station Farmer's Market.
Fried Green Tomatoes:
1 cup cornmeal
1 teaspoon house seasoning or season salt
a bunch of grease/oil
beat egg and dip tomatoes in it
put cornmeal in a reused ziploc, then drop the tomatoes in and coat the tomatoes with cornmeal then into the oil over medium heat until light brown.
Warning: green tomatoes eaten raw do not taste very good but one they are cooked yummy!
