Fried Green Tomatoes

Serves 4 to 6

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup finely ground yellow cornmeal
Salt and pepper
4 to 6 tablespoons canola oil or butter (or combo) – (some cooks like to add a touch of bacon fat to the oil for flavor)
2 to 3 green tomatoes, cored, sliced one half-inch thick, and soaked briefly in lightly salted water or milk

Mix the flour and cornmeal together and season well with salt and pepper. Heat the oil and or butter in a frying pan. Drain the tomatoes and dust them with the seasoned flour mixture. Shake off excess flour and add tomatoes to the hot oil. Fry the tomatoes for about 3 minutes on each side, or until tender, sprinkling each side with a pinch of sugar. Remove and drain on paper towels. Serve hot.
