    Aunt Paula's Note:

    This is my MIL recipe. It's very good, and a good way to use those left over green tomatoes at the end of summer. It's so nice to open a jar and make fried green tomatoes!

      Ok so I was hoping this would work for fried greenn tomatoes but it didnt, the tomatoes were to soft and had no flavor (except for a salty taste). It did however work for green tomato bars. I was hoping this would work :( maybe I did something wrong? followed recipe exactly... I will try again this year as I have planted different varieties of tomatoes. UPDATE>>>> It turns out that the first jar was mushy because the tomatoes were not green enough (we had alot that were just starting to turn)... we decided to try it again and after going thru the next jar we discovered that the ones that were really green upon canning held up nicely, we decided to fry them and it worked! I am sorry the first jar didnt turn out but I know now to only use GREEN tomatoes! not any that are starting to soften!. we will make these again.

      I made these last year and am just getting around to thinking about canning season for this year. My hubby loves green tomatoes fried in olive oil...but have only been able to have them seasonally. I bought a half bushel of green tomatoes towards the end of the season last year and used this recipe. He told me to plan to make them again this year. It is hard to tell them from fresh. Great and easy recipe...between the two of us we eat a quart at a time. I canned them in wide mouth jars.

      I also used the canned green tomatos for fresh hot sauce to eat with mexican food it was very good. I usually only use red tomatos.
