Show & Tell: Brooke’s Fried Okra

Hello, my name is Brooke, and I’m going to tell you about fried okra.  I have a little garden in my back yard, and one thing we grow is okra.  Every Sunday, my 90-year old great grandaddy cooks fried okra for my family.

It’s really good.  Here’s how you can make it:

Fried Okra:

  1. Cut okra into little disks (ask mom or dad for help)
  2. Soak the okra in buttermilk.
  3. In a plastic baggie, mix equal parts of flour and cornmeal.
  4. Add Zatarain’s Creole Seasoning to your taste.
  5. Put okra in the baggie and shake to coat.
  6. Deep fry the battered okra in oil on the stove (ask mom or dad to help)
