I am going to cook okra for the first time in my life. I have eaten okra before as a child. The fact that I never liked it has nothing to do with my mom's cooking (she's an excellent cook). It was prepared in a tomato sauce, an authentic Arabic recipe, and this creates slimy okra. I don't have many food qualms but that is one.
I bought two packages of okra yesterday at the Farmer's Market, from the same lady who sells us our chickens and eggs.
This lady gave me a recipe for fried okra and also Robin has a detailed recipe/photo tutorial here. (Be sure to visit just for the photos, even if you don't like okra!) I am going to bread the okra pieces in cornmeal, as suggested by the egg lady.
