Fried green tomatoes gone sour??

I just attempted fried green tomatoes for the first time. The recipe turned out great! The crust was crunch, the inside soft..but the taste was all wrong! I have only had fried green tomatoes once and it didn't taste sour like it did for me tonight.

What did I do wrong? Are there degrees of ripeness in green? If so, how do you tell? Im desperate. I made my family try it for the first time ever and now they told me to never make it again.

Help!

The recipe said half an inch, but I think they ended up a little thicker...

I think the basic problem is that your tomatoes were too thick. We've always made them with very thin slices. About 1/16 to 1/8 inches would be about right...about --->||<--- to --->| |<--- thick.

Also what seasoning did you use for the tomatoes? Green tomatoes do not taste good by them selves to begin with. Simply frying them is not going to change that.
