Dear Barbara: Are “fried green tomatoes” just unripe tomatoes, or is there a special tomato that is green in color that they use? Where can I find a recipe without having to buy a cookbook? — Peter from Lodi

Dear Peter: I think there are a lot of people that are not sure. I didn’t know myself until I was probably 30! Fried green tomatoes are exactly that. Toward the end of the tomato season, gardeners have an abundance of green tomatoes that are large enough, but they don’t ripen because of the weather. Because they are firm, but have good flavor, they are perfect for frying.
