Since my kids had eaten fried okra in school and liked it, I took some home to cook for them. Well, first I tried to peel it because it was "hairy" - of course it disintegrated in my hands. Then I just sliced it, but it had seeds, so I tried to "de-seed" it. Finding that a monumental task I called one of the ladies I worked with at the answering service and asked her how to cook it. I spent 5 minutes on hold, while she laughed herself silly over what I had done. She told me to slice it, bread it and fry it. Turned out pretty good that way, and was very easy to make. Live and learn I always say. ;)
I'm curious, Linda, what kind of breading do you use? I've tried the frozen pre-breaded and didn't like it at all. Whenever I try breading, it falls off. I use the frozen sliced okra.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.
