When life gives you lemons….or green tomatoes…
so I posted below about my son picking a green tomato off of my marvel striped plant. I was so disappointed because I could tell it was going to be one of the first beefsteaks to ripen.
Well, you know what they say about when life gives you lemons…make Lemonade.
I decided to make fried green tomatoes. I have never had them before but the concept sounded simple enough.
I sliced my green tomato in thin slices about 1/4 inch thick. Salted them on both sides and let sit for about 10 mins. I decided not to dip in egg or buttermilk because it was just one tomato. I made a seasoned flour mix: flour, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne, salt, pepper, and a little semolina flour (i did not have cornmeal).
Floured the tomatoe slices and fried over medium heat in bacon fat.
They were AMAZING!!!! I think next time my son picks a green tomato I am not gonna be the least upset.
