grilled okra

Postby farmwriter » Mon Jun 15, 2009 11:42 am

After hearing about it last year, we cooked some last night for the first time. Wow, it was fab! Just skewered the pods, brushed w/olive oil, dusted w/seasoning salt and lightly browned. Unbelievably good.

Good okra is a good thing most any way you cook it. The key to good okra is to get it while it's young...

And these were tops, granny. Most only as long as my thumb, none longer than my finger. I can't hang with the plain boiled okra though - too slimey for me.

Boiled is good. Just slides right down.

Deer love okra too. More than anything else in the garden. They've eaten all my okra, I'm just waitng to see what they annihilate next.

Rolled in corn meal and fried until they are almost burned. That's the only way I eat it. I love it, though.

This has made my hungry for okra and I don't have any yet.

Yes, GA. the right amount of burn is critical. I like it nice and brown, just on this side of crispy.

I can't wait till ours comes in. It has to be fried crisp.

Flour and corn meal is good for okra, squash and fried green tomatoes.

Just fried some a couple of weeks ago, really nice. While I was frying some, my oldest daughter, 13, pleaded with me to make her some "slimey" okra. I have to admit, fresh okra boiled & sprinkled with vinegar is pretty good.
