Anticipating fried green tomatoes

Tomato plants continue to creep higher and higher up their bamboo stakes. Red globes hanging from the vines. Luscious. Vibrant. Inviting. In varying sizes. From cherry-like to moderately large. Delicious additions to salad. Sliced and tucked into toasted pita bread, for breakfast. Diced and smothered in homemade pesto. Even simply eaten like an apple, straight off the vine. With a little salt. And while there are still unripe tomatoes on the vine, I plan to make some, as yet untried, fried green tomatoes. Not something I have ever seen served in this country. And today is the day for experimentation I think.

Mmmm, tomatoes. They are an obsession of mine, you know. I like them best raw, cool and with a bit of sea salt.

You need to be awarded some sort of prize for being the first Kiwi to serve fried green tomatoes, I think. At least make sure it's photographed, hey? Enjoy!

Mmmmmmm, Yum! Can I come for lunch?? That looks so delicious, and sounds even more luscious as you describe it!

Tomatoes are almost the perfect food. Where would we be without them? As you will see from the following post, the fried green tomatoes were. . . . . . .

(Just 'clicked' that I can reply to your comments this way. Sometimes my brain is worryingly slow).
