 Does anyone have a good recipie for Fried Green Tomatoes. My garden is busting at the seams. I remember eating them when I was a kid at grandmas house, but do not remember how they were made. I do remember that she served them with fried okra wich is also strting to produce.

2 Tbs. Mayonnaise
1 large egg, beaten
1 Tbs. parsley
2 Tbs. Old Bay Seasoning
1 Tbs. Cayenne
3 Tbs. Bread crumbs (with 1-2 cup for coating)

Combine Worcestershire, mustard, mayo, egg, parsley, Old Bay, cayenne and bread crumbs. Add crab meat and gently combine. Form into patties and lightly coat with breadcrumbs. Heat oil in a medium pan and fry until browned. Drain on paper towels. Serve with dill sauce.

Dill Sauce

keep wicked calm
In case you've never made collard greens, here's a pictorial how-to. Try it; they're good for you, besides which no Southern Belle can qualify for that title if she can't cook up a mess of 'em, with a big ole pan of buttermilk cornbread! If you are really lookin' to impress a new beau, fry up some chicken to go with 'em, real crispy, and make a fresh peach pie . Yum, yum! Read more...Collapse )

Gardens grow better when ya watch 'em. You knew that, right?

[x-posting this to scream]

Apologies if this has been posted here before, but a friend of mine just sent me a link to this organization, the SFA:


They have tons of interesting stuff on their website, including a section on the oral history of southern food, where they are soliciting contributions of oral histories, photographs, hand-written recipes, interviews, tales, etc surrounding various southern recipes, country kitchens, cooks, and so forth. They have their own recipe collections, cookbook reviews, all kinds of cool sections.
