Green Beauties

Would you just look at these green tomatoes... amazing is what I would call them.

Recently on GOOP ( there was a recipe for Fried Green Tomatoes.  (Thanks C!)

It was quite an adventure, a little messy but well worth it.

Here is the battering station.  I refuse to deep fry in the house so we put the side burner on the BBQ to good use.

Start with seasoned flour.  Move on to egg and buttermilk and the last step is a mixture of cornmeal and panko bread crumbs.

Cornmeal and Panko bread crumbs give a great crust with lots of satisfying crunch.

The end result was a great new way to have tomatoes.  There was a slight 'lemony' flavour but there was no lemon in the recipe.  Weird... I know.  It's just the bright, acidic flavours of the unripe tomatoes.  Delicious is what I call it. 

Something fun and different to try.  And don't knock it until you actually try it.  You could be surprised.

That's all for now!
