Fried green tomatoes are an Appalachian, Southern favorite in the spring and summer time. Stories have been written, movies made, and even an old-time traditional song called "Home Grown Tomatoes" mentions this simple un-ripe fruit delicacy. There must be a thousand ways to fix them and like options everybody has their own, this is mine...
