WHEN AN ACCIDENT GIVES YOU GREEN TOMATOES......




FRY THEM UP!
When a large branch snaps off your tomato bush and the cluster of tomatoes hasn't had a chance to ripen yet, what do you do?  Fry up some green tomatoes, baby!  They were so incredibly tasty that now I may be harvesting these beauties before they get the first tinge of pink in them. Next time around, I am spreading them with some goat cheese before I coat them in cornmeal and fry them up. 
I will let you know how that goes.....
(P.S. don't let my incredible photo styling intimidate you....)

Simple how-to
Heat approx. 1/2 inch of canola oil in saucepan
Mix a half cup or so of cornmeal with a little salt and pepper
Slice a few green tomatoes
Dip tomatoes in shallow milk bath
Dredge tomatoes in corn meal until lightly coated
Gently place coated tomatoes in oil (with tongs)
Flip over after about 2 minutes until both sides are lightly browned
Remove and place on paper-towel lined plate to drain and cool a bit
Feast and enjoy!
