  • Cut off and discard tip and stem ends of okra. Cut okra into 1/2-inch thick slices.
  • Combine buttermilk and eggs. Add okra slices, stirring to coat. Cover and chill for 20 minutes.
  • Combine cornmeal, flour, salt, pepper, and baking powder.
  • Remove okra from buttermilk mixture with a slotted spoon; discard buttermilk. Dredge okra, in batches, in cornmeal mixture.
  • Pour oil to a depth of 2 1/2 inches in a Dutch oven or cast-iron skillet. Heat to 365° over medium-high heat on stovetop. Fry okra, in batches, for 6 to 7 minutes or until golden brown; drain on paper towels.

    This is a nice recipe,but,when I go to my garden to pick okra,I always make sure that they are young and tender.

    Other then that...this is a great recipe.

    Kind Regards
