Can't comment?

July 17th, 2012 at 09:29 pm

I've been trying to respond to the previous questions on my blog post for yesterday, but it won't accept it. Weird.

Anyway, I've made okra two ways so far. First, I wash it and cut the caps off. Then I cut it lengthwise in half. I put some olive oil in a bowl, add the okra and coat it, then add flour, cumin and salt and coat. The oil helps it to stick. Then I fry it in oil. Yummy!

But, this recipe is really awesome:

What does it taste like. Hmm, it has a mild, musky flavor. More earthy than cucumbers or squash. It has mucilaginous properties, which you might call slime. I didn't notice it in the finished products in the two recipes I use it in, but it does get on your knife, cutting board, etc.

    Are you trying to put urls in your comments? Because if you are sometimes it gets caught in the spam bouncer even when it's a legitimate link and it won't let the comment post at all. I got to play that game the first week of July.

    Must have been the url. Thanks, LuckyRobin!

    I added zucchini and yellow squash to the above recipe, because, well, I am getting buried from all of them. Turned out great again!

    We have been living in SE Europe for the past few years, and they make a pickled okra here that is absolutely delicious. It's my wife's favorite, and she and my oldest daughter could go through a whole bottle in one meal! The only problem is that, if you aren't used to it, the pickling process can make the food initially a little rough on the tummy (gas, mainly). After that, though, you have some insurance that it won't bother your GI system further. Smile Jerry
