My Grannie always had a huge garden. I remember, more likely my back remembers helping in her garden. I got my love for fried green tomatoes from her. Anyway, this is very good, and I found a way to fix with no calories!!(LOL).We should be able to fix with less calories, but, is so good this way!! I got recipe from a sixties era magazine. I believe it was in Southern something. Sorry, I wrote it down in a hurry. I think the magazine was in a Dr.s office. It tastes very rich and very Southern. Please enjoy, all you fried green tomato
