Yay, the fried green tomatoes were a success. My friends and I fried them up using tortilla crumbs as the breading. I sliced the tomatoes into quarter-inch thick slices, dipped them in milk, breaded them lightly, and fried them in hot vegetable oil. So good!
Since we had a pan of hot oil going, we also fried up some seeds from a butternut squash, and also some apple slices breaded in the extra tortilla crumbs. Both were good little snacks, but I especially liked the fried seeds. The frying crisped up the outer husk, making it easy to just eat the whole thing instead of having to pull out the kernel. The moral of the story is that frying makes things awesome.
