Hi everybody – I’m in need of a recipe for fried okra. I lost my mom 4 years ago and have been trying every summer since to make fried okra like hers. No such luck! I’ve tried several different recipes and they just aren’t right. I helped her make it many times and I know that she used flour and cornmeal, salt and pepper. I believe an egg wash too. Mine just never taste right. I’ve given up on trying to make them healthy because that doesn’t seem to be an option – baked some once and they were like cardboard. Yuck! I figure it’s not something we eat all the time so the oil to fry them is fine – but they still just don’t taste like Mom’s. Any help would be appreciated.
