  Categories: Native amer, Vegetables
       Yield: 6 servings
       2 lb Green tomatoes
       4 ea Eggs
   1 1/4 c  Corn meal
     3/4 c  Water
     1/4 c  Minced chives
       1 tb Salt
     1/4 ts Pepper, fresh ground
     1/4 c  Butter or margarine
   Slice the tomatoes 1/2 inch thick, but do not peel or core.  Drain
   well between several thicknesses of paper toweling until most of the
   moisture of the tomatoes is absorbed.  While the tomatoes are
   draining, make a batter by beating the eggs until light, then mixing
   in the corn meal, water, minced chives, salt and pepper.  In a large,
   heavy iron skillet, heat the butter or margarine until bubbly.  Dip
   the tomato slices into batter, and brown quickly on both sides. Serve
   at once.
