Fried Green Tomatoes Texas Style

“I couldn't find the same recipe on Zaar site. Enjoy a little taste of Texas! My recipe calls for a healthier way of frying, but if you prefer the deep fry: 6 cups oil and when tomatoes float to the top, they're done (if they're nicely browned, that's done, too, but they should float) and drain thoroughly.”
