Fried Green Tomatoes
40 mins (prep 30, cooking 10)
8 ingredients
12-15 servings
I did a search and came up with many fried green tomato recipes on here, but this one is different in that it uses buttermilk, and no cornmeal. Culinary lore says that ripe red tomatoes felt so much like human skin that eating them was considered improperly erotic. In any case, there was something suspect about this New World member of the nightshade family that the Spaniards first brought back to Europe. One solution to it's naughty nature was to eat green tomatoes, which are firm and not nearly as sweet as ripe ones. This version is delicious. Cook times are guestimates.
