 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       c            Water
    6                    Pods fresh, tender okra
    1       c            White cornmeal
      1/2   ts           Salt
      1/2   c            Butter, cut into pieces
 
   Bring the water to a gentle boil in a 3-quart
   saucepan, add okra and cook for about 10 minutes.
   Remove the okra with a slotted spoon and set aside.
   
   Raise the heat under the saucepan so the water boils
   briskly.  Add the cornmeal in a thin, steady stream,
   stirring all the while to prevent lumping.  Add the
   salt and okra; cook, stirring for 10 to 12 minutes.
   Remove from heat and add the butter a piece at a time,
   stirring after each addition, until all the butter is
   incorporated.  Keep stirring until this okra has
   practically disappeared and the cornmeal is light.
   
   Correct seasoning and serve hot.
   
   Serves 4.
