Fried RED Tomatoes

Most of us are familiar with fried GREEN tomatoes--YUM! But, my Mom and Dad used to pluck tomatoes from the garden in summer when they were red and firm--the beginning of their ripeness. Then Mom/Dad would dredge slices of the tomatoes in flour and fry in, I guess butter and/or oil, in a black iron skillet. Then they would sift powdered sugar on top.

Is this an exclusive "recipe" invented by my parents,or has someone else enjoyed this particular treat? FoiGras
