DIRECTIONS

  • Fry bacon and reserve 3 tablespoons of drippings. Crumble bacon and set aside.
  • In a large saucepan, mix okra, tomatoes with juice, onion, sugar, salt and pepper. Add the 3 tablespoons of bacon drippings. Gently bring to a boil and turn heat down to slow simmer. Cover with lid and simmer for approximately 30 to 40 minutes until tender. Do not stir okra because it easily falls apart.
  • Pour into a serving bowl and add crumbled bacon on top.
  • Note: If using fresh okra, wash okra and cut off ends. Cut into 1 inch pieces. For fresh tomatoes, wash and core tomatoes. Cut into small pieces.
  • Enjoy!
