    Made these last night using the suggestion of using the cornmeal / egg / cornmeal approach. Came out great. I also add salt and pepper immediately after cooking.

    I love fried green tomatoes! I started off with this recipe exactly as its listed but unfortunately the coating didnt stick well, so I went along as other users said to dip the tomatoes in the cornmeal mixture first then in egg, and then in the cornmeal again- they came out perfectly crunchy and the coating stuck perfectly! Would definitely make again!

After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
