Senior Nutrition: Fresh Tasting Fried Okra From Frozen

A country vegetable plate is one of my favorite meals, and unless it is summer and I have fresh produce, I rely on my freezer for vegetables. So, the goal is to make them taste like fresh. This is how I do that with okra.

Your ingredients are simply a bag of frozen sliced okra, 12 to 16 ounces
1/4 to 1/2 cup of AP flour plus 1/2 teaspoon salt, or self rising flour with no added salt.
Optional: 3 to 4 tablespoons of either panko crumbs, bread crumbs, cracker meal or corn meal.
OIl for frying, enough to cover a single layer of the cut okra.
