I may lose some of y’all today! I think that okra is one of those things, like grits, that make people wonder about folks in the southern US.
But okra is what’s growing in everyone’s gardens down here. It will absolutely grow like wild. It loves the heat, it loves our crazy soil, it just enjoys the South.
And, if you fry it, it’s heavenly with some corn on the cob and some sliced tomatoes for a tasty supper on a hot day. :)
Sliced okra (about 1/2 inch thick)
1/2 cup buttermilk
Salt and pepper
Heat oil in cast iron pan.
Combine cornmeal and dash of salt and pepper in a Ziplock bag.
Dip the okra in the buttermilk.
Toss the sliced okra with the cornmeal mixture in the bag.
Place okra in the frying pan and turn it as it cooks to prevent it from burning.
Cook until the okra turns a golden brown.
Drain and serve.
Hope you’ll enjoy a traditional Southern side! And—do you have a regional delicacy that may make others turn up their nose a little? :)
