Mary Jo Chamberlain is a donor of St. Mary’s who loves to cook recipes she learned from her family in Mississippi. She made fried green tomatoes, a feel good food from the south a couple of weeks ago. In the video, Mary Jo begins with a bit if history and ends with revealing a few tricks for making the best possible meal, and how to enjoy what you are creating in the kitchen.

Ingredients:

  • 4 or 5 large green tomatoes
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup fine cornmeal
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • up to 2 quarts of vegetable oil

Directions:

Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.
Beat eggs and water in a shallow bowl. Place flour and cornmeal in 2 separate shallow bowls. Season cornmeal with salt.
Dip each tomato slice into flour, then dip into egg mixture. Press tomato into cornmeal mixture, shaking off excess. Transfer tomato to prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining tomato slices, arranging tomatoes in a single layer.
Heat about 1/4 inch canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat until oil begins to shimmer. Fry tomatoes in batches until golden and crisp, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Drain on paper towel-lined plates. Repeat with remaining tomatoes.

This last week, I had the pleasure of conducting an interview with one of my classmates, Sara Jauregui. The recording linked below features some clips of Sara speaking of her current plans and hopes for the future. She ends the interview by telling me of someone who always is able to cheer her up and help her in times of need.
