It must be BIG okra!

My wife gets the "Taste of Texas" pickled okra all the time and it's good. But we bought some other pickled okra on vacation and it wasn't any different than the TX stuff!!

Mords, Okra is a seed filled pod. You eat seeds and all. Depending on how it is cooked okra can become slimy during the cooking process. The best way to cook it is to cut into 'coins' coat with either flour and cornmeal or just flour and fry in a pan. Of course this explination is very simplified, but will get you started in the right direction.

Frying will eliminate the slimey effect. Not that it bothers me. My neighbor sauteed up some this weekend and brought it to me. More snot for me.

Try to find fresh. Go to a "Whole Foods" or "Fresh Market", or something similar. See if they have them.

Or even see if you can find frozen. I can't picture okra from a jar being very good. I could be wrong though.

I imagine he's talking about pickled okra, which I don't think I would fry.

Okra of any kind is delicious! I love it and miss getting it fresh from my dad's garden. I've tried buying the canned or frozen stuff from the grocery and seems like it's always tough and stringy........NOT good! The pre-breaded frozen stuff isn't bad and my daughter will eat it with me. Cooked any other way they turn up their noses. I also love pickled okra and every now and then can find it around here.
