Gettin' fresh … in Northern Nevada

Fried Green Tomatoes

Once upon a time, I hated tomatoes.   I think I have mentioned this before in other posts.   But, just to be clear, I love fried green tomatoes.    And, I would normally say that these are only properly done in the southern United States.

Nope.   Not so.  I figured out the secret.

It is this awesome cast iron pan that my hubby bought me for our sixth wedding anniversary present.   (Google that — it’s sugar and iron.   Go figure.)

It turns out that I knew it all along but I just didn’t remember it until now.  My Grammy always cooked in cast iron.   It makes a big taste difference.   And, it might make be buffer to carry in those heavy CSA boxes each week.   This is a seriously beefy skillet.   Old ladies back in the day must have had some guns in those arms!

Anywhooo … there must be extra love in that pan because the combo of cast iron and cornmeal did the trick.    Good stuff.

  2. I love using cast iron especially for something like this. I’ve made them once or twice but they’re definitely not a common occurence.
