I have wanted to try fried green tomatoes ever since I first heard about them back when I was a kid, though up until this summer I had never actually tried making them before. This summer my tomatoes have been doing extremely well so I always have plenty of green tomatoes on the vine. The other day 3 of them looked perfect and round, and ready to pick even though they still weren't ripe. I ended up picking them, and had this recipe for fried green tomatoes in the back of my mind.
I brought the tomatoes home and got to work, making the same breading mixture I often use for chicken fingers, only with the addition of corn flour rather than the usual all-purpose. I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome, happy to have an additional use for my bounty of tomatoes that didn't quite taste the way a traditional tomato does. It's been a couple of weeks since I last made this recipe, and writing about it now makes me want to have it for dinner tonight! Off to the greenhouse I go, I'm sure there's a plethora of green tomatoes I can choose from. ;)
