How to Make Fried Green Tomatoes

Plays: 13332

Chef John heads south to create a classic of Southern cooking. Yes, fried-green tomatoes. The key is to salt the slices of unripe green tomatoes and let them sit for a spell. The salt will draw out moisture. Another key? Using a breading that combines corn meal and bread crumbs. The texture will be just right. In the video, Chef John shows you the trick to breading the tomatoes. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John's Fried Green Tomatoes. Serve with his simple Southern dipping sauce.

Hey John, I am Southern (play the song) and I use buttermilk and BACON grease! I think they make ALL the difference. Additional pepper after cooking is suprisingly good, as well.
