Fresh green tomatoes
Flour

Vegtable oil

Directions:
Directions:
Slice tomatoes about 1/4". Spread on plate. Sprinkle salt evenly over tomatoes. Continue placing tomato slices in layer over previous layer and sprinkle with salt until all tomatoes have been salted.

IMPORTANT; LET THE TOMATOES SIT (ROOM TEMPERATURE OR REFRIGERATOR) AT LEAST TWO (2) HOURS. This removes water from tomatoes so that they will cook up nice and crispy.

Remove tomatoes from container. Mix flour, a little salt and pepper in a bowl. Coat each tomato slice with flour mixture.

Heat oil in a skillet to medium high. Place tomatoes in oil. (Reduce heat when necessary). Let tomatoes brown on one side, then turn and brown on the other side. When tomatoes are a golden brown, remove one at a time and place on paper towels to drain.

Personal Notes:
I'd say serve immediately, but they're so good, that most family members hover around the stove to eat them as they are ready.
