Speaking of the south, fried green tomatoes is something I love to make (when I can get my hands on a green tomato). Occasionally around this time of year I can find them at the farmers market, which is always exciting. This year I bought a "fried green" tomato plant. I have to admit I was skeptical, it seemed like a scam, isn't a green tomato just an unripe tomato? But it was an heirloom variety so I thought it would be worth a try. Best fried green tomato I ever made! They are small, firm and super delicious! I even fried them one night and topped them on a homemade pizza, yum! And they are awesome with mae ploy sauce, but then again what isn't! K
