Not always happy but always happy to be Catholic.
Okra!?Blaech!Phooey!Gag!Ugh!Eeyewwwwwwwwwwwwww!Forsooth!Get thee hence, Vegan!
Mmmm, we just had pickled okra in its finest form: as a garnish to a Bloody Mary at a VFW breakfast.And I just realized that the plant that my neighbors are growing that looked mightly similar to a controlled substance is actually okra. Thanks for the recipes.
Mack, if it helps, I believe the finest way to serve okra is with ... mmmm ... bacon.
Bacon is good; okra is tubular, rather like occluded sewer pipes.
