"I've never made okra before but had some fresh from the farmers market and wanted to try it. I didn't have any cornmeal so I used corn muffin mix and I didn't have buttermilk so I made it with whole milk and vinegar. It turned out great! We loved it and this will be my go to recipe for fried okra!"
