Someone from church gave me a mess of okra yesterday. I haven’t had it in a while, so I’m excited to cook some up tonight. Here in the Blue Ridge Mountains, we fry okra. I heard of someone boiling it – and couldn’t even imagine how slimy that must be 🙂

Growing up in the mountains, I heard several people refer to okra as okree. Have you?

So tonight, I’m going to follow this recipe for cooking okra. It’s what I remember my Granny doing.

1. Slice the okra

2. Dip it in buttermilk

3. Roll okra in cornmeal

4. Place okra in skillet with heated oil and fry until brown.

 

That’s it! Do you have any great recipes for cooking okra?
