Mmmmmmmmmm……Fried Okra

I am pretty sure that many people don’t know what okra is or at least have never cooked it before. It’s a southern delight and so tasty! I like it boiled as much as I like it friend but it makes Mr. Picky-eater sick to watch me eat boiled okra so when I found this exquisite delicacy at the farmer’s market Saturday, I just had to get it.

When we got home, I washed it very well and then began cutting it like this:

Then I put it in a Ziploc bag with flour:

I poured it out into a colander to get all the excess flour off.

Pour it into a dish:

Using a slotted spoon, put okra into the dish and coat:

Once again, using a slotted spoon take the okra out and place in a big dish where you then sprinkle with flour seasoned with salt, pepper, and whatever else you want – I used chili powder.

Toss to completely coat, cover with foil or saran wrap and place in fridge for at least 30 minutes and up to 90 minutes.

Bring cooking oil up to 350 F degrees and start putting okra into pot with a clean slotted spoon.

Remove from oil with the slotted spoon. Working in batches, continue until all is done. Some people serve this side dish with hot sauce sprinkled on but we eat it with ranch dressing!
