Fried Green Tomatoes

Dry mixture: 2 1/2 cups flour 1 1/2 cups fine corn meal
1/4 - 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper salt and pepper
Wet mixture: 1 large egg 1c.buttermilk
1 tsp baking powder 5 tsp baking soda
Cut 4-6 large green tomatoes @1/4 - 1/2 inch thick
Dip in wet mixture then in dry. Hold on wire rack (up to half an hour is okay)
Fry in 350 degree vegetable oil til nicely brown and crisp ... turn once.
Drain oil on brown paper bag. Serve immediately.
Serve with any chutney, pickled watermelon rind (yum!), or sweet and sour sauce.
Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange sauce is the best!!!
Despite what the movie shows, these really do not travel at all!
