Okra


Okra is pretty to look at, but not very pretty to eat. Especially local okra, and especially when photographed cross sectioned with local skinny sweet red peppers. But like I said, I seem to be seriously lacking in the How To Make Okra Yummy category. Note to self: Slimy cooked okra is not a recommended wrap ingredient. Blech.

I've read lots of Indian food blogs that LIVE for cooking with okra!

You're so right, Jeff! In fact that's why I grabbed the okra from the "trial crops" share table at Blooming Glen (CSA) last week -- I was having flashbacks of some kick ass curried veggies I had recently :) Check out Happy Burp's recent okra post: http://happyburp.blogspot.com/2006/08/dum-bhindi-okra-marinated-in-yogurt.html

Thanks, Jenn :D

That's a pretty pic of the okra. I use it in a chunky corn chowder and I've had it in a few Middle Eastern Dishes before too.

Being from the South, I have to say that fried okra rocks my world. Not particularly healthy..but awfully yummy!

To make it yummy put it in a Bloody Mary in lieu of celery :)
