Green tomater fries! Why not? The ketchup is hot and you may use much less cayenne if you like. Adapted from
- 1 lb green tomato, cut into 1/4 inch sticks
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- 3 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1⁄2-1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or less if you're a wimp like me)
- 1 teaspoon hot red pepper sauce (Tabasco)
- 4 -6 cups vegetable oil (for frying)
- In a large bowl combine the seasoned flour ingredients, and mix well. In a separate bowl combine Fiery Ketchup ingredients.
- Heat oil in deep fryer to 400 degrees.
- For each serving, dip 4 ounces tomatoes in buttermilk, letting excess drain off and then dredge in seasoned flour. Be sure to get all sides, press lightly while flouring so it will stick.
- Fry individual portions so you do not overcrowd fryer. Deep fry for about 1 minute, until outside is golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
- Serve with 2 ounces Fiery Ketchup for dipping. Enjoy!
I canned green tomatoes last season using Canned Green Tomatoes so they weren't in sticks but in circles. I can't rate for ingredients and quanities but I can rate on taste and ease of preparation. I used 1 pint jar of the canned tomatoes and divided the seasoned flour and ketchup in half which was perfect. These were served in place of french fries with patty melts. Delicious!
