Two Southern staples in one dish, what could be better! Serve this with mixed greens and barbequed chicken.
2 cups water
2 cups okra
1 cup white cornmeal
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup soft butter
1 In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil, add okra and cook for about 10 minutes. Remove the okra with a slotted spoon and set aside.
2 Using the same saucepan, increase heat until the water boils briskly. Slowly add the cornmeal, stirring continuously to prevent lumping.
3 Add the salt and okra. Cook and continue stirring for 10 to 12 minutes.
4 Remove from heat and add the butter a piece at a time, stirring after each addition, until all the butter is incorporated. Serve hot.

I didn`t think I would like this, but it turned out to be pretty good. And my children liked it too.
