Directions:
Wash okra good at least twice. Cut off ends and discard them. Cut okra pods into small pieces. Toss around with some salt and pepper. Sprinkle real good with dry corn meal.

Serve this hot. Wash okra is warm water.....as this will keep it from "biting" your hands too bad with the rough skin.
