I’m a G.R.I.T. Girl Raised in the South, and every now and again I get a craving for that good old comfort Southern food. We fry everythang and I mean EVRY’ thang. We fry twinkies, Snickers bars, pink guitars. Yes, I know all about my oils (from peanut to conola). Peanut is good for turkeys and conola is good for green tomatoes.
It’s rare to find a good friend green tomato up here in the Northeast. When I found these tomatoes in my local grocery store I couldn’t resist. And the fact that they had buttermilk, too? Awww, man. I won’t be coming home for awhile, but these will have to suffice.
3 green tomatoes
2 cups of buttermilk
1 cups of all purpose flour
1 cup of yellow cornmeal
1 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp pepper
4 cups of canola or vegetable oil
1) Heat the oil on medium-high heat
2) Mix the flour, cornmeal, paprika and salt together
3) Slice the green tomatoes
4) Dip in buttermilk
5) Dip in mixture flour/cornmeal mixture
6) Check the oil by putting in a speck of cornmeal. It should begin to fry immediately
7) Deep fry for 5-7 minutes
8) Place on paper towel to catch the oil.
