I wash and remove the tip and stem and cut into bite size pieces - across -. I soak it in buttermilk for an hour or so, then drain it thoroughly in a collander. Shake it in corn meal seasoned with salt and pepper. (some people use flour, but it isn't as crisp) Deep fry it in oil (canola, corn or vegetable oil) about 375 til golden brown. Then you can eat it like popcorn, or serve with a fresh veggie meal and it is heaven!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is delicious.
I eat a vegan diet, so that one's out for me personally, BUT... if that wasn't the case, that would on the menu tonight because I'll bet it's delicious!

If they aren't available, I've also heard that frying it will "de-slime" it. I guess I need to try it myself.

Of course sometimes (like in a stew) the sliminess is your friend!

My mom used to make an okra stew with sauted lamb pieces, onion and garlic, canned tomato and the okra.

I love it fried! I’ll eat a plate of it as if it were french fries! A great vegetable dish is to mix it with onions, tomatoes, and corn. Add some chili powder or cayenne powder for a little kick, bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes. It’s great! Kind of like a mini-gumbo of sorts. Good stuff.

After boiled in salted water or breaded and fried... my mind drifts to sauteed onions, green peppers, tomatoes, garlic, etc, and the many roads this can take me down...all of them good!!

Alton Brown did a special on Okra one time. I have only had it breaded and fried. I have never tried making it as I have heard about the "slime" affect.
