Double Battered Fried Green Tomatoes


'Tis the season for fried green tomatoes.  This morning I fried up a batch and used them in a breakfast dish.  But these were worthy of their own blog post.  A cast iron skillet is a perfect way to fry them.  

2 medium green tomatoes, sliced about 1/2 inch thick
2 cups self-rising corn meal
salt and pepper
2 cups buttermilk

Preheat oil to 375 degrees.

Place the cornmeal in a shallow dish and lightly add salt and pepper.  Pour the buttermilk in a separate bowl.

Dredge the tomato slices in the cornmeal, dip them in the buttermilk and then coat them with another layer of cornmeal.  Let the coating set for a few minutes and then carefully lower a few at a time into the oil and let them fry until golden brown on both sides.

Drain on a towel and lightly salt.  Enjoy one of the best delicacies ever.
