Fried Green Tomatoes Part II

Our fried green tomatoes are a customer favorite at 29 South, and are rated as "One of the Top Ten Best Comfort Foods" by Jacksonville Magazine.  What makes ours special over the usual Southern staple is the creamy goat cheese oozing out when you take that first bite, and the sweet and tangy roasted red pepper jam.  Over the past week a number of fans of this little Dirty South delicacy have written asking me for the recipe for the red pepper jam.  

So here it is! It is super easy and you can use it on a variety of foods, such as grilled fish and chicken. Enjoy!

Roasted Red Pepper Jam

  • 1 cup of sliced roasted red peppers You can roast some yourself, or pick up a jar at the store.  I like to keep a jar of roasted red peppers in our fridge at all times!  They low cal and are great on pasta, pizza, couscous, salads, chicken, and fish.
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons of white Balsamic Vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper

Add all the ingredients together in a small sauce pot and cook over medium high heat until thick. Boiling liquid should form large bubbles and resemble syrup when spooned on a cold plate.  Salt and pepper to taste.

If you try this recipe out this weekend please let us know what you think. Have a great Memorial Day!

I wanted to thank you for the recipe for the maters!!! I made dinner for 7 this weekend, and my menu started with 29 South's own fried green tomatoes. Two previous fried green mater haters are now converts. Thank you!!!! Clarita
