- 4 large green tomatoes
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup corn meal
- 1/2 tsp salt and pepper
- vegetable oil (or bacon grease)
Mix together flour, cornmeal, salt & pepper. Add enough buttermilk to create a thick batter. Heat 2 inches of oil in a large skillet. Batter each tomato slice, and wipe off excess. Carefully place in hot oil, browning on both sides. (may or may not need turning, depending on the amount of oil) To cool, drain in a colander to keep tomatoes from becoming soggy. Salt to taste.
