Classic country fried okra

Thursday, February 18, 2010

What you'll need:

  • 6 fresh, medium sized okra per person
  • cornmeal
  • salt to taste
  • oil to fry in
Boil the okra until it is tender enough to pierce with a fork without tearing them. Slice into 1/8 - 1/4" medallion slices and roll in salted cornmeal. Fry in oil heated to 350 degrees until browned. Serve hot.

Cost:
okra – $3.99/lb
cornmeal – $3.12/5 pound bag
Total - $2.31 for 1/2 lb okra (feeds 4)
