I originally came from New York City and I have NEVER heard of fried green tomatoes. First off, I have never even seen a green tomato in the Super Wal-Mart before! It was not until five years into my Florida integration that I heard of this strange concoction. Then another five before tasting one. First off, I have never even seen a green tomato in the Super Wal-Mart before!
Recently, I started growing my own tomatoes and I decided to pick off some of the green ones to do a small experiment. I tried a random fried green tomato recipe and it was very addicting. As I fried them up for my fiance and I, we couldn’t stop eating them. I would fry a few, let them cool while others fry, and then gobble them up. We never got to sit down and eat them because they never made to a serving plate 🙂 Then the next day, I actually see green tomatoes at a local grocery market. I was stunned. I have gone twenty-three years of my life never seeing a green tomato and then BAM I see a whole cart of them. The Fates said “Eat more fried green tomatoes!” I modified this recipe from Hilal’s Cooking Videos from YouTube.com
