Beer Batter Fried Okra

This goes GREAT with grilled cat fish and any leftovers make a fine cold midnight snack! If you're not familiar with okra, the larger pods can get really tough and stringy, so think SMALL!!

    Jack, I don't give many 5s but this was absolutely wonderful. We just picked our first batch of okra and I decided to give DH a treat with "fried" okra. He said it was like eating candy. Thanks for submitting your recipe.
