This is crunchy baked okra.....just within the past few months I learned the secret to fried okra (and green tomatoes!). Why so hard, you ask? Cause I'm from the north and Yankees don't fry food. Fortunately marrying a Mississippi boy will help motivate you to learn. :) oh, and having his mom to learn from really helps.
