Pickled okra's really good. I was gonna make it one year, but my plants weren't easily accessible, so they got too big and tough before I got to them.

A favorite of mine, too.  I like it in vegggy soup, but fried is best to me.  Very simple to do too.  Take the fresh okra and cut in into those little slices.  Put the breading in a gallon ziplock bag, and put the okra in.  Shake vigorously.  Take out the breaded okra and put dinner sized portions in freezer bags.  Put in freezer.  When it comes time to cook it, simply take it out of the freezer and into the skillet with a bit of oil to fry.

Another way to cook it is sprinkle a little olive oil on them and salt them. Put on grill and cook till you get grill marks, turn over do the same and eat like potato chips.

   It is mandatory when you have a batch of fresh field peas and butterbeans. A corner of cornbread will make it a complete meal. I think in the UK they call it ladyfingers.

  Of course ever since my wife found I prefer the corner piece of cornbread she has made it in a round pan just for spite. Now that's a mean woman! :D :D

@WV Sawmiller Baking Cornbread in a round Iron Skillet is not a bad thing and it does not have to be sliced like a pie or RRQS.  

Make one cut from bark to bark through the pith.  Rotate 90 and saw through, top to bottom making 8/4 one live edge slabs.  The results are 4 very nice live edged corner pieces that can go to either the burn pile or your plate.   ;D

I like the cast iron corn stick pans. Pretty much the whole thing is crispy and delicious  :^)

Pickled or deep fried okra is definitely a must have. Goes great as a side dish as well.

I'll have to say fried is not bad at all .It's just a veggie you don't see often this side of the Mason -Dixon line .

I don't eat it fried anymore but I do like it cooked with tomatoes and onion, seasoned with a little Italian seasoning.

If you steam it in a steamer basket, it will not be slimy.

With due respect I think okra is about like grits .If you are raised up on either most times you will like them,if not you may or may not .My first experience of okra was in the navy and I didn't care for it .I did however love the Cajun style food prepared by the head commissary man how hailed from Louisiana .
