Fried Okra Tonight!

weekly CSA produce share
Watermelon and okra! Two of our favorites!

We we wondering when it was going to happen. When we’d get our first batch of okra in the weekly share. Since okra is a hot weather crop, we’ve expected it for several weeks, and when it showed up, we knew exactly what we were going to do with it: Fried okra.

We know that okra seems to get a bad rap, that it’s slimy, but we never find that to be the case. If you do, make sure you are using fresh okra, slice while dry, and use a sharp knife, all of which are things you can do to minimize sliminess, but we don’t know as our okra is just delicious.

This weeks share included:

  • Okra (1 basket)
  • Pepper mix (1 bag)
  • Tomatillos (1 basket, traded for more peppers)
  • Yukon Gold potatoes (6)
  • Little Sweetie Glendale Gold Onions (1 basket)
  • Choice of melon (1)
  • Tomatoes (1 basket)
  • Summer squash (2)
