FRIED OKRA, FOOD FOR FALL


As your summer garden vegetables have reached an end, and your fall garden is barely peeking through the dirt, it's likely that the last plant standing in your backyard patch is the hearty okra.  And, lucky for you, our friends at the Communal Skillet experimented with the SFA recipe for frying it.  It's an easy recipe.  All you need is salt, pepper, cornmeal, hot bacon grease, tender okra, and a good Lodge skillet (preferably seasoned for years by your mother or grandmother).  If you don't have a seasoned skillet yet, get to work!  It takes time to get just the right amount of flavor in your cast iron cookware.
