Fried Green Tomatoes & Southern Blues!!!


In our continued effort to extract EVERY EDIBLE BIT O’ GOODNESS out of the garden, we were cheffin’ up fried green tomatoes in the garden. First thing we did was pick the last bit of green tomatoes off the plants in the playground area.


We then brought them down and put a fabulous batter on them of brown rice flour, coconut milk, salt, and corn meal (vegan & gluten free!). The corn meal goes on last and adds a nice bit o’ crunch.


After that we wrote the recipe on green tomato construction paper cutouts and ate them up!


They were a big hit! Maybe 75% of students liked them (which is low for us, but hey- we tried eating a lesser known recipe of a semi-exotic food!)…


We also listened to a really cool mix of southern delta blues and talked about the origin of this recipe- the Southern US! The music helps make this a true cultural experience. Tune it in and turn it up…
