BLTs and Okra!
« on: August 02, 2015, 09:30:23 am »
Here's something I tried recently with my garden fresh okra and tomatoes. when I make a BLT (weekly this time of year) I cut up some fresh okra and after I pull the bacon off the skillet I throw the okra, unbreaded, in the hot bacon grease and fry it up as a side dish. Light salt and pepper. Simple and Delicious.

Yep, sounds good. Bacon fat is liquid gold.

Sounds like a way to get me to like okra, which I don't think I have ever had a properly cooked version of. I did something similar yesterday. I was grilling/smoking a duck and poached baby carrots from the garden in the duck fat I rendered.
