At least buy the kind with the sausage in it. While there is not a lot of sausage, the flavor is better than the other sauces.

This was used mostly by people who grow their own tomatoes. You can pick them when they are green. Basically, I think that if you b...

Fried Green Tomatoes

I have never had them, and have heard they are very good. Does anybody have a recipe, and btw, where do you get the green tomatoes? I have never seen them in a grocery store.

Add about 4 tab. flour stirring constantly at low heat. Turn the heat up a little and gradually add 2 cups of half and hal...
