Fried Okra

This dish is a favorite here at the farm, and we think you’ll love it. If you hate okra because it’s slimy, try this.

1/4 – 1/2 cup cornmeal

1/4 – 1/2tsp salt

(about) Pint of Okra (this recipe can easily be doubled or tripled for larger crowds or extreme okra fanatics)

Olive oil

Mix cornmeal and salt together. Cut okra into 1/4 inch pinwheels and stir into mixture. Put around 3 Tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan, and heat pan. When the pan is hot, put coated okra into pan. Stir constantly when cooking, and when brown and slightly tender, (5-8mins) remove from pan. If okra becomes dry while cooking, add more olive oil.
