Fried Green Tomatoes

Irma describes this as a dish for impatient tomato lovers who, in early Summer, cannot wait for their tomatoes to ripen. I had never heard of such a thing! To me, fried green tomatoes are what you do at the end of Summer, when you have sadly given up on them ripening.

Green tomatoes are beautiful, aren't they? The same color as the most precious jade:

Great way to celebrate finishing your exams this week!

Strangely they taste really good in sandwiches as leftovers. The oil adds moisture. and there is so much flavor from the tomato!

Remember our first taste of the fried green tomato in TN's country side? We also learned during that trip that their "vegetable menu" is potato salad, fruit flavored jellow and anything else??
