Fried Green Tomatoes

By: Jennifer Anderson

Green tomatoes can be used in all sorts of dishes, from relishes to pies…and of course, fried green tomatoes!

Perfect Green Tomato
Not all green tomatoes are alike. When those shiny emerald orbs first begin to appear on the vines, they're not yet edible. The best-tasting green tomatoes are those that have reached full maturity--that is, the jellylike substance around the seeds has fully formed--and have just the faintest hint of a red blush about their flesh. Once picked, these mature green tomatoes can keep for weeks, slowly edging towards redness. If you do want to store them long-term, arrange them in a single layer in a cool (but not cold) place and check them frequently: one bad tomato can spoil the whole batch.
