Ingredients

Fried Green Tomatoes:
  • Coconut oil, for frying
  • 1 1/2 cups cornmeal

  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

For the tomatoes: In a large heavy-bottomed saucepan, pour enough oil to fill the pan about a third of the way. Heat over medium heat until a deep-frying thermometer inserted in the oil reaches 350 degrees F.

Dredge the slices of tomato into the flour, then the eggs and finally in the seasoned cornmeal. Place the breaded tomatoes in the oil and fry until golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side. Remove and drain the tomatoes on paper towels. Season with salt and pepper.
