Thanks MamaJones. I have tried to make fried green tomatoes for years and we never much cared for them. They were OK, but not something I wanted to repeat.
Thought I was doing something wrong. So changed the recipe and tried again. Tried cornmeal, the traditional flour, eggs, breadcrubs/cornmeal dredge, just flour, you name it. Would put some sugar on the slices and let sit prior to cooking. Cut the tomatoes thicker, thinner, heck, if I could think of something I did it.
I thought everyone loved fried green tomatoes. Thanks to you I realize it may be an aquired taste, one I am having trouble acquiring.
Am not trying to waylay this topic, was just glad to learn that maybe I was not cooking them wrong. Getting to green tomato season, so maybe I'll give it another go.
Am not holding my breath that we will like them though.
