Fried Green Tomatoes

When I was a little girl my Italian Grandmother from NYC was obsessed with the movie Fried Green Tomatoes. I used to think the thought of tomatoes that were green were gross. As i grew up I began to realize that movie was not about food at all. Fast forward to my teenage years growing up in South Carolina, it was normal to walk and see a random garden in someone’s yard. It started with a small theft in my neighborhood (my bad) of someone’s green tomatoes from their garden. My mom and I sliced them when I got back and fried them in one of her coveted cast iron pans. We mixed all the condiments in the cabinet to come up with the tastiest sauce. That was when my love for "Fried Greens" was born.
