When the movie Fried Green Tomatoes came out 1992 I was fascinated by its name and the thought of how that dish would actually taste, and why green tomatoes in the first place. For the young northern European ears and mind, it just sounded like something very exotic.
Well, all these years have passed, and even though I went to college in the States, and lived there for several years, I never ate fried green tomatoes - before this summer! Oh, and I loved them, the taste, the texture, all of it!
We served them on the side of a well-marinated beef, and it was a lovely meal, indeed. The fact that the tomatoes came from the home garden made the meal even more special and tasty, in my opinion.
I hope you are enjoying the last days of summer with some home-grown produce.
Till next time
