All of our kids love fried green tomatoes, which seems a little crazy to me. I wouldn't eat them until I had been married for several years. I ate tomatoes, but just the kinds that are pureed into ketchup or spaghetti sauce. Jeremy has expanded my tastes quite a bit. I had no idea how good some things could taste.
Anyway, Jeremy has been playing around with a wet batter for the fried green tomatoes because it sticks better. Coconut oil crisps it up very nicely, and we dry them for a bit on a rack. These don't need any kind of dip; they are delectable just the way they are. (But some homemade ranch is perfect too!)
3/4 c. cornmeal
1/4 c. flour
1 T. seasoned salt (Jeremy uses Lawry's)
1 t. pepper
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/4 t. onion powder
1/4 t. chili powder
1/4 t. dry mustard
1/4 t. cayenne pepper
Mix all the dry ingredients together.
3/4 c. milk
1/4 c. honey
Whisk the wet ingredients until the egg is beaten, then combine with the dry ingredients.
Slice the green tomatoes evenly (about 1/4 in. thick), toss in the batter, and fry in hot coconut oil. 3-4 minutes on each side. This is enough batter for 6-7 big green tomatoes.
