I am posting this in tribute to the hours I spent as a child picking okra in my grandparent's garden. I never knew fried okra was a vegetable growing up, I thought it was a special treat only available in the summertime. Frozen okra was thrown into gumbo, but when it was fresh, we usually fried it. (Unless Daddy requested "stewed" okra.....his favorite, not ours!) I can't believe this version isn't on food.com, but I couldn't find it. Here's to a wonderful childhood!
