I used this recipe and added some cajun spice to the flour mixture. They turned out GREAT. Sam and I ate the entire thing!
Fried green tomatoes are such a summer treat that I look forward to each year. Usually I have heirloom tomatoes growing in the raised beds of my garden, but for the first time in 6 yrs I didn’t plant any. Luckily, they sell them now at my local grocery store. My cousin posted on her Facebook today that she fried some up, so I decided to do the same.
I have not been able to find any solid history on fried green tomatoes. Smithsonian says they’re possibly not even Southern, but of Jewish origin. Other sources maintain that they were not really a thing until after the 1980s. I remember eating them as a child way back in the 1970s, so those ‘other sources’ can’t be right. Wikipedia has absolutely NOTHING on their page regarding their history, either.
Whatever the history, they sure are delicious!
