Last year at the end of gardening season I took the remains of my garden (old tomato plants, weeds, seeded out lettuce and spinach, etc.) to the composting site. I was so surprised to find in the compost pile a bunch of beautiful tomato plants that still had green tomatoes on them. I snarfed those puppies faster than you could imagine.
I brought my treasure home and made my wonderful fried green tomatoes and they were so delicious.
I make my batter with some corn meal, a little flour, salt and pepper. I dry them off first to get rid of any excess liquid. I dredge them in plain flour first to keep the batter on and then dip them in the corn meal mixture. Then I warm up some bacon grease and fry them golden.
Add a little cut up fruit and I have the most heavenly breakfast.
Thanks to whoever left those lovely tomatoes on the vine last season. I hope to get more this coming fall.
