firm green tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch slices
ice water, or as needed
canola oil, or as needed
salt to taste
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!
