     Remove the stems and slice the okras diagonally into

   water to a boil.  Add the okra, hot pepper & salt to

     Meanwhile, sift the cornmeal into a bowl and add the
   remaining 3 cups of water.  Mix well.
     Remove the saucepan from heat and combine mixture.
   Return to medium heat stirring frequently until the
   mixture is smooth and thick. Turn out onto a plate and
   spread the butter on top.  Serve hot. Yield: 6 servings
   Notes from cookbook:  Cou-cou means side dish, and
   although it is chiefly served as an accompaniment to
   fish-especially flying fish in Barbados-it can be
   served with other fish or meat dishes.
