    [​IMG] Hi. I recieved a PM asking for my fried green tomato recipe..can't remember which post I mention it in...so here's the recipe.
    *Note: I prefer my cast iron skillets, not grease pots.

    Fried Green Tomatoes

    5 or 6 firm green tomatoes 1/8 dill weed
    1/2 c milk 1/4 tsp. celery seed (optional)
    1/4 c. flour 1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 c. cornmeal 1/4 tsp. pepper
    2 tbsp. brown sugar butter
    1/8 tsp. marjoram

    Mix together flour, cornmeal, brown sugar, marjoram, dill weed, celery seed, salt & pepper. Slice tomatoes. Completely wet them in the milk (a bowl) then place in the dry mixture. Fry in a skillet with butter...add a little crisco to the grease mixture.
    Fry on medium heat until, crisp, brown & tender.

    Enjoy!

    I love fried green tomatoes, too, but have never had such elaborate ones! I will be looking forward to trying these when I have green tomatoes, thank you! [​IMG]

    Wow that sounds delish!
    I usually just dip them in flour then egg then flour again, fry in bacon grease, salt and pepper them and eat them with ketchup or ranch dressing.

    Gwen, these sound wonderful I usually just crush up crackers and dip the tomato slices in egg and then into the cracker crumbs and fry them up. Wow this sounds so gourmet!! Last year we never had ripe tomato from all the frying up of the green ones!! I need to plant lots of tomatoes this year. Thanks for sharing.

    [​IMG] This is a recipe from a dear little church lady I went to church with as a little girl, she would invite us over for dinner, and she always brought a plate to dinner on the ground events. She freely gave me the recipe to several of her dishes, well, mom, then me...
    I have a yen for so many fried foods it's pitiful. My garden consist of items that are "fry-able!" Okra, squash, zucchini, greens (ya know ya fry them in bacon grease)
    I have also taken this recipe with a few more tricks and turned it into hushpuppies.

    What a nice history to go with the recipe, as well!

    Yes, I know all about those "fry-ables!"

    Each year we make summer squash the same way as green tomatoes. Mostly I use yellow crooknecks, and patty pans.

    Then there are potatoes.....my granny fried them in bacon grease, and we don't even want to go there about how wonderful those were! [​IMG] [​IMG]
