I love fried okra, it’s always been a special summer treat in our family. This recipe is from the Southern Living Heirloom Recipe Cookbook.
- 2 pound fresh okra
- 3/4 cup Salt
- 2 cups plain cornmeal
- Canola Oil
Slice okra. Combine 3 qt. water with salt, pour over okra. Soak for 30 minutes, drain & rinse twice. Dredge okra, in batches in cornmeal. Pour oil in a dutch oven. Heat to 375. Fry okra in batches for 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
