I've been thinking about something for several years, and thought I'd share it here after reading Parsonswife's post on fried green tomatoes. A lot of people like fried green tomatoes, I talk to them in the summer about it, especially. Yet, when's the last time you could walk into the store and buy green tomatoes to fry? Not here! Tomatoes are pretty time sensitive when ripe, and you have to handle them so carefully. Why don't companies sell green tomatoes to the store? Easier to handle, and I know there's a market for them. Then it occured to me....why a company? Why not me? (Or, you.) If you are growing tomatoes, chances are you will have plenty. Perhaps they would sell at the farmer's market, or maybe people you know who don't grow vegetables would like to buy some once a week; perhaps with their eggs! Or a small, local store? Anyway, I would like to see if I could make a few cents on something plentiful, and thought someone else might like to try, too. I wanted to add, which is why I posted here, that you could include a tasty recipe, such as Parsonswife's for her fried green tomatoes, with the green tomatoes. I don't imagine I'm the only one who makes them with a plain breading, and there are probably people who've heard of them, but have never made them at all. So maybe a basic recipe, and then something more interesting!
