Best Fried Green Tomatoes

The Yummy Tomatoes lady at the Columbia farmers' market urged me to check out this recipe at Southern Living's website, using buttermilk. I have to admit, these are much yummier than my old way of frying green tomatoes, which was just to dredge them in cornmeal with salt and pepper.

Dredge tomato slices in:

1/4 c. flour

Then dip in a mixture of:

1 large egg
1/2 c. buttermilk

Then dredge in a mixture of:

1/4 c. flour
1/2 c. cornmeal
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

Cook in 1/4 to 1/2 inch of vegetable oil. Sprinkle hot tomatoes with salt.

(You can see the recipe in its original form at this Southern Living webpage.)
