Your post is so good that it deserves repeating.

I didn't mean to disrespect anyone else's recipes. I know there are many ways to fry a tomato.

Yup, this is making me miss even the greenies! I made fried green tomatoes back in October with what was left of the tomatoes, and over the course of 2 days I pretty much ate most of them myself. As a snack lol....

Hmmmm. A really stupid quoestion:
Are GWR varieties ok to use for this? Or does it defeat the whole idea...

I did read somewhere that non-ripe tomatoes have the toxic compound solanine that's also found in potatoes exposed to light... Does frying / sauteeing break it down so no one gets stomach ache?

As long as you use the tomato when it is unripe, it is fine. But you cannot make fried green tomatoes with ripe tomatoes of any color. The dish calls for firm, crispy, unripe tomatoes.

I see what Scott said, but I have used GWR tomatoes lightly ripe not often I prefer unripe but in a pinch I use what is on hand. I simply love oven fried green tomatoes on sandwiches or a side I will have some tomorrow come to think of it.
