Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Aunt Helen - "Grandma Holland always loved fried green tomatoes, so when we were on the farm [Springfield, MO] I mailed her some green tomatoes. I didn't count on it being a holiday weekend [4 days]. I registered them, needless to say they were rotted and of course I couldn't collect ha ha. So here is the recipe for Grandma Holland's Fried Green Tomatoes." This recipe also submitted by Wanda Wood- note from Wanda - "Mom used Cornmeal but can use self rising flour. This was one of Mom's favorite foods. Anytime she could get her hands on some green tomatoes, she would fry up a pan full."
