Mawmaw’s Simple Fried Green Tomatoes

Tomatoes still on the vine at the end of the season can be used in a variety of ways, one of the more common is Fried Green Tomatoes (or baked, if you prefer. Place prepared tomatoes on a parchment lined baking sheet.) Use your own green tomatoes or include green tomatoes with your purchases at the Downtown Marquette Farmers Market this Saturday.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Place tomato slices in a bowl of ice water; soak for about 5 minutes.
  2. Heat about 1/2 inch of canola oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat.
  3. Combine cornmeal and flour in a bowl.
  4. Remove tomato slices from ice water, one at at time, and coat lightly in the cornmeal mixture; shake off any excess. Place in the hot oil.
  5. Cook tomato slices, working in batches, until edges are golden brown, about 4 minutes per side. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel-lined plate. Sprinkle lightly with salt.
