Southern fried okra


Published on

Fried Okra is a Southern favorite. Even Yankees like myself love it. I could eat this morning, noon and night! Crispy golden tender Okra is the secret. You can pick fresh Okra at our farm during the summer months. We have over 30 seasonal veggies, herbs and fruits growing all year round. Check out our website. HydroHarvestFarms

  5. 5. Pick Your Fresh Okra.Okra is best when fresh picked and young. No longer than 4 inches. The pods shouldbe bright green and dry. Wash all of your vegetables before preparing.
  6. 6. Gather your ingredients. Any kind of oil you have on hand will do. I like bacondrippings best, but olive oil is great too. We sell Cat Cora’s at the farm. I love thetaste, kind of fruity. Pick fresh Jalapenos or other hot peppers. You can leave the onionand peppers out of this recipe if you prefer.
  7. 7. Cut the cap off the Okra.
  8. 8. Cut the Okra into ¼ to ½ inch slices. Place in large bowl.
  9. 9. Cut the onion and peppers (if you like to add them) and put them into bowlwith Okra
  10. 10. Add the Corn Meal (self rising yellow cornmeal is what I use). You can alsoadd ½ cup of flour at this point if you like a heavier crust on your Okra. Addyour seasonings to taste, salt, pepper, garlic powder. Mix all of the flours andingredients well.
  11. 11. Let this set on the counter for at least ½ hour. This allows the flours to adhereto the okra and other vegetables.
  12. 12. Heat the oil in the pan to at least 375, don’t let it smoke, just hot. Carefullyadd Okra and spread out evenly. Fry on one side until the Okra is goldenbrown.
  13. 13. Turn the Okra and continue frying until golden brown on both sides.
  14. 14. Okra should be golden brown and crispy. Remove and place on paper towelsto absorb some oil.Sprinkle with some salt and pepper to taste.Enjoy the best Fried Okra in the World!
