Now that green tomatoes are in the market, we’ve been getting lots of requests for our favorite Fried Green Tomatoes recipe. You really can’t beat them and believe it or not, they don’t take much time to do at all. We love this savory summer treat. If you try them, let us know what you think! RECIPE BELOW
Fried Green Tomatoes
Recipe adapted for our family from Delishably
Green Tomatoes (we usually do 5 or 6 at a time)
Salt (to taste)
Pepper (to taste)
Sugar (just a dash on each tomato slice)
1 1/3 c. Flour
2/3 c. Yellow Cornmeal
1 1/2 c. Buttermilk
Canola Oil *Follow instructions closely. Green Tomatoes are easy, but as with frying anything, it can be tedious.* 1. Slice tomatoes about 1/3 in. thick. Be sure not to slice too thick (they’ll get soggy in the batter), or too thin (they’ll be tasteless)
2. Place sliced tomatoes on a foiled baking sheet and sprinkle generously with S&P and sugar (sugar releases juice) and let tomatoes sit for around 15 minutes. It’s really important to let them sit so the tomatoes sweat.
3. Pour your oil (we use canola) in a skillet (cast iron works great) until it’s about an inch deep. Oil must get up to 360 degrees before you start frying.
4. Mix flour & cornmeal and toss in a freezer bag. Beat egg in a separate bowl, add buttermilk.
5. Coat all tomato slices in flour mix. Flour mix should stick to slices.
6. Coat in buttermilk mix, then toss back into flour mix. Coat well.
7. Lower tomatoes in oil (make sure it’s reached that 360 degrees mark. Very important.) and cook until bottoms are golden brown. Flip & let them continue frying until all sides are golden brown.
8. Remove tomatoes from oil with slotted spoon and place on paper towel-lined plate. Don’t stack tomatoes until they’ve been out of the oil for 10 minutes or more and never cover them (they’ll get soggy otherwise). 9. Right before serving, salt them again. It makes them 10x better. Pair with fresh sweet corn and a great steak!

Picked up a cabbage at the farmer's markets. Planning to make an epic salad for dinner.
Do you cabage?
If not here are some reasons why you should:
1. It is rich in vitamin B6 and folate, which increase metabolism and improve nervous system functions
2. Cabbage is high in fiber and contains powerful antioxidants
3. It is high in vitamin C, which is beneficial for your sight, fights heart disease and certain cancers
4. There are tons more benefits of this awesome veggie so eat up!!

July is filled with an abundance of delicious and mostly local fruits and vegetables. When you buy in season, you know that your produce has had a higher likelihood of ripening while still attached to the plant! Which means more flavour profile, and more nutrients for your body.
If you are able to get the majority of your produce local (even better growing some yourself), then there is a higher chance that you will have plant ripened fruits and vegetables. The way it is supposed to be!
