firm green tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch slices
ice water, or as needed
canola oil, or as needed
salt to taste
These are appropriately named because they really were SIMPLE to make. No dipping in flour, then egg, and then in bread crumbs. Just right out of the ice water into the flour-cornmeal mixture and into the skillet. The tomatoes didn’t turn to mush, and they had a nice thin crust which stayed on well, not a heavy breading like many recipes have which often can interfere with the actual green tomato flavor. The only thing I did differently was to lightly sprinkle some sugar on the tomatoes instead of salt. This is always the way I’ve eaten them, and I think it works well with the tartness of the tomato. Enjoyed your recipe, thanks for sharing!
Wonderful! I think the ice water helped keep the tomatoes firm although the recipe didn't mention that. Awesome taste! I would have taken a picture but they were eaten too quickly.
Just like both of my Mawmaws used to make! Wonderful recipe, thanks!
