A shameless snack!
I have about 10 pods of okra from my garden (today & yesterday's haul), and they are very small and tender, so ...
I'm cooking a couple slices of "black forest" bacon for broccoli salad.
Keep the grease in the hot pan, toss in the clean, trimmed okra (I cut off the cap end almost to the seed pod; I don't wash because I know they're from my garden - just brush them off).
Let fry a couple minutes without stirring, then keep an eye on them and stir until nicely browned.
Drain and enjoy!
In the future I will try them cut up, with cornmeal, etc. - but this simple method will be wonderful!
