I love tomatoes and I really don't like losing my plants to cold weather. But tonight we will have our first hard frost and my plants will be done. I know I can pick the green ones and put them in the basement and they should ripen, but they just don't taste the same.

So I made a batch of fried green tomatoes and they sure are tasty.

3 firm green tomatoes, sliced about 1/2 inch thick and coat them with the following:

1 Tab olive oil

1 tea sea salt

1 tea white pepper

1 tea dry Ranch dressing mix

Then dip each tomato slice in buttermilk and then into this breading:

2 cups self rising flour

1 tea salt

1 tea black pepper

Then I redip again in buttermilk and flour mixture

Fry in 4 cups peanut flour.

You can make your own self rising flour by adding 1 1/2 tea baking powder and 1/2 tea salt to each cup of regular flour.
