Recipe: Fried Green Tomatoes

This recipe was submitted by one of our CSA members, Shannon. This dish is one of her family's favorites. Her mom has tried to do the tomatoes lots of different ways, and this is the best way she's found to make them:

- Slice the tomatoes 1/4 inch thick
- Salt the slices on both sides
- Dip the slices in a mixture of cornmeal with a dash of cayenne (no need to dip the slices in something first; they will be wet from slicing)
- Heat a few tablespoons of canola or olive oil in a skillet over medium heat (you want to cook them kind of slowly so they can cook all the way through before they are too brown)
- Place the slices in the skillet
- When they start to brown on the bottom, flip them over
- Sprinkle black pepper on the second side and wait until the underside is brown
