4-5 green (unripe) tomatoes, sliced thinly
1 3/4 cup buttermilk
1 3/4 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup cornstarch
Soak the tomato slices in the buttermilk for 20-30 minutes.Meanwhile heat a 1/2 inch of oil in a frying pan. Pour the cornmeal, cornstarch, salt and pepper on a plate and stir to combine. Dip both sides of each tomato slice in the mixture. Add to the hot oil and cook until golden brown on both sides, flipping once, about 8-10 minutes. Remove to paper towel lined plates, blot and serve hot.
*If you really want to be decadent, add a couple tablespoons of bacon grease to the oil.
