We went below freezing the other night, so we picked our green tomatoes beforehand. Last year I made up a weird recipe, and we did it again this year, still excellent. I don't cook with "recipes" so I didn't measure any of this, I never do, it's more idea than recipe.
I like fried green tomatoes, and I like hush puppies, and if you look at the recipes for them, they are very similar.
Dice up green tomatoes (weird shaped tomatoes use up well here!) and onions, make a batter of cornmeal, flour, milk, baking powder, whatever spices you like (jalapeno is excellent in it too!) and fry them up like pancakes. Or add an egg, and run it through a waffle iron, that's our favorite, light and tasty!

I'm working on making my basement water the garden! Wonder if I can make ticks pull a plow....

Great idea - thanks for sharing! I, also, love fried green tomatoes.... and all things Fannie Flagg.... all things southern... and all good, real food. I will definitely try this. I love putting onions and jalepenos in my hushpuppies - that is a must with fried fish or barbecue!
