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.

No good.

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.

I've had a long day today. Almost 100 miles on the road, but I have a good fried green tomato recipe I'll post tomorrow. Right now I'm ready to crash. Need to stack up some ZZZZZs.

I've never canned food, but if I did, I'd make green tomato salsa (I'm making it now with the last of the tomato plants). Tomatoes, onions, garlic, green chilies (I have green chllies as well as green tomatoes, of course) Alas, no cilantro (it bolts in June, never to be seen again). Lime juice. Yummy.

What to do with green tomatoes

I like to make a green tomato salsa and can it. What I also do is to wrap tomatoes individually in newspaper and put them in a cold spot in my basement. They ripen at a slow rate and I have fresh tomatoes long after the frost here.
