Fried Okra PattiesIt doesn’t get much more southern than okra. Originally okra was brought to America by slaves where it weaved itself into Southern culture. The hot and humid conditions of the deep south are ideal for growing this Southern staple and this time of year you can find it everywhere. Now in my opinion there are only 2 ways to eat okra, one is in gumbo and the other is fried. I once worked at a restaurant where they served boiled okra and I’m telling you there are only 2 ways that anyone should ever eat okra, and boiled ain’t it.Fried Okra PattiesI grabbed this recipe out of a cookbook I got at the library ( you should really go there sometime) called the best of Georgia Farms Cookbook and Tour book. It has recipes from hundreds of different people throughout the state of Georgia. It is a great source for different recipes for seasonal items. I bet your state has one too, you should go to the library and flip through it.

  1. Pickled okra is also fab. We grew okra this summer and have had many okra pickles and sides of friend okra with dinner. I'm going to try these tonight with the pods I just picked.

  2. I found your site recently and have been making my way through it. I'm a Georgia girl [living in Kansas] and had to have this book. I found one at Amazon for $1.69. I love cook books, especially those that connect to my heritage!

  3. I love okra and just wanted to know the best ways to cook it my mom would make ox tail soup and put them in just before the soup was done when she new I was coming home for a visit. I just realized she really did love me a lot.
