Print this Recipe    Fried Okra

It irks me to no end to see people who serve "fried okra" that's been
battered and deep fried. How revolting! It's thick and really slimy.
This is good okra. You need:

- Small okra pods (the big ones get to be as tough & furry as kudzu vines)
- corn meal mix (Corn meal mixes are made by Martha White, White Lilly &
Jim Dandy. There are probably others, but those are the ones I
see in the grocery store often. Corn meal mix already has flour &
baking powder added to it. If you were making cornbread, all you would
have to add is an egg & milk. Recently I saw White Lily flour in
a Williams-Sonoma catalog, albeit for a significant increase
over what it costs in the grocery store)
- salt
- oil ~1/2" to 1" deep in a pan

Slice the okra into rounds about 1/4" wide, dredge in corn meal mix and fry.
Salt it while it's in the pan. Drain and it should be crispy, crunchy and
oh-so delicious.
