So my Veggie garden is no more. I always have to plant tomatos in the summer. So I decided to plant them in pots. Well I bought a few plants and planted them. A week later, strolling though my Veggie Garden (what's left of it. Weed Galore, since I never tilled the soil or planted anything) To my surprise, tomato plants everywhere. AHHH! I need 4 pots to plant everything.
Anyway, Two years back, my husband and I did the "Nicholas Sparks Tour" Traveling around the outer banks and a few places in North Carolina starting with his home town of New Bern.
We ate at the Chelsee Restaurant which was Lovely. And I was smitten with the chef's recipe of his own rendition of Fried Green Tomatoes my fav. I called him up after I got home to find out what was the secret. He was so charming and southern and said "I can't tell you but you can guess." Well I wound up guessing most of it and then he told me the secret. I will tell you too.
|Okay so I sliced my absolutely beautiful green tomatos.|
|Seasoned equal parts of cornmeal and flour with substantial amount of coarse salt an a pinch of black pepper. Then took milk and egg batter, seasoned that too with salt for dipping.|
Here is the finished product. To Die For!!!!!!!!
This is the creation of a 5 star chef who incorporated the perfect flavors and infused them ever so perfectly with the green tomato. Ahhhhhh! Delightful. Enjoy!
