I tried to fry my okra, and it was uncooperative. I put in oil, and okra, and put it on moderate heat. Well it didn’t want to brown. It took over a half hour to fry. That is a long time. I love real fried, okra. Mom used to cook it on high, and even if it was burned, we loved it. She rarely missed on the okra. We all loved it, and I still have it about twice a month. Today was the day, but I am always surprised when it won’t cook right. I didn’t hold my mouth right.
