I made fried green tomatoes over the weekend, topped with homemade salsa and pickled green tomato relish I had made a week or so ago.

They were excellent, until we ate the green habarneros that I had meant to remove from the relish but forgot.

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

Me too!! --- I will deviate and use P-Nut oil on occasion! Also like a hint of black pepper with the salt.

Fried green tomatos are great with a sauteed soft shell crab on top of them

When tomatoes are coming out of my ears-I can sliced (very thick) slices of green tomatoes. I use the tomatoes that are perfect fitting in a pint canning jar-wide mouth, with vinegar and salt and water, then water bath. They are not as good as fresh (a little soggier) but they are a welcomed treat in the winter.

The hardest part is waiting the 2 weeks to try them!

Well worth the wait though...
