Sorry, but I just made "french fries" out of sweet potatoes in coconut oil, and they were better than any okra I've ever tried. Okra is ok, don't get me wrong.
Glad you liked it lev96!! Thanks for reporting back:-)

Here is a recipe that I tried last night where you cut the pods in half first: Oven Roasted Okra Fries | Lesley Eats
They were pretty blah but perked up with a little olive oil and vinegar plus celtic sea salt. Easy and quick way to fix okra...they are good later right out of the fridge, too.
