I can’t waste food, and if something does get by me, I feel horrible. I especially can’t let anything I grow go to waste. The last time Seth and I re-staked the garden, there were quite a few green Roma/Grape casualties. I decided I would go ahead and pick them up, while I was picking the ripe ones, too.
Last night I fried them. OH EM GEE. Now, I want to go pick large green tomatoes and make a friggin fried green tomato stack.
Breading Free Fried Green Tomatoes
- Green tomatoes (cherry, grape, small roma)
- Reserved bacon fat
- Sea salt
- Black Pepper
- Garlic powder
Heat a couple TBSP of reserved bacon fat in a skillet until liquid, and add halved green tomatoes. Season with spices, let sizzle for 10 minutes or so. Eat. Try not to inhale. You could substitute for coconut oil if you don’t want the bacon fat. Best thing about green tomatoes is they don’t get mushy or soupy.
