Fried Green Tomatoes with Peach Pepper Jelly Sauce

Raven Higheagle


Fried Green Tomatoes are a favorite throughout the South. This recipe pairs crunchy fried green tomatoes with a pepper jelly sauce studded with diced peaches. Pepper Jelly is my absolute favorite condiment. I love it as a salad dressing, a glaze for salmon, a condiment on a Panini, and as a flavoring for margaritas.
Around these parts, green tomatoes are all over the place at farmers markets and roadside farm stands during the summer.
