Just enjoyed some fresh fried green tomatoes for lunch. A thunderstorm last night knocked several tomatoes off the vines, so I had no excuse not to cook. Had the "old school" recipe with cornmeal, flour, and buttermilk, fried in bacon grease. Unbelievably good!

I've never eaten a fried green tomato.
Need to find a recipe. Frying is something foreign to me as well.

Fried Green Tomatoes Recipe


Ingredients

3 medium, firm green tomatoes
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup milk
2 beaten eggs
2/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs or cornmeal
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Method

1 Cut unpeeled tomatoes into 1/2 inch slices. Sprinkle slices with salt and pepper. Let tomato slices stand for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, place flour, milk, eggs, and bread crumbs in separate shallow dishes.

2 Heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a skillet on medium heat. Dip tomato slices in milk, then flour, then eggs, then bread crumbs. In the skillet, fry half of the coated tomato slices at a time, for 4-6 minutes on each side or until brown. As you cook the rest of the tomatoes, add olive oil as needed. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Toasted Insalata Caprese


I had a great breakfast this morning of fresh tomatoes, sliced fresh mozzarella, and basil. I stacked the tomatoes with basil, a little salt & pepper, and a 1/4-inch slice of fresh (soft) mozzarella cheese. I toasted under the broiler and served each on a slice of toasted Italian bread. It was delicious!

PS--I neglected to say that the tomatoes were Cherokee Purple. Even more flavor!

This is from Fannie Farmer's Cookbook

Tomato Preserve
1 lb. yellow pear tomatoes
2 ozs. preserved Canton ginger
1 lb. sugar
2 lemons

Wipe tomatoes, cover with boiling water, and let stand until skins may be easily removed. Add sugar, cover, and let stand overnight. In the morning pour off syrup and boil until quite thick; skim, then add tomatoes, ginger, and lemons which have been sliced and the seeds removed. Cook until tomatoes have a clarified appearance.

One thing I found with these recipes is that the lemon peels, left in, add a candied sort of flavor to the preserves. I opted to take the peels out after cooking (had sliced the lemons rather than chopping them). They were delicious, but I thought they overwhelmed the more delicate flavor of the pear tomatoes. I'm interested in what the rest of you think.

I will have to try them before I can comment. I don't have enough tomatoes yet to try that. Maybe in a couple of months.
