I'm sorry to hear that you didn't get to go to the wedding in Louisiana but hanging out and watching television while reading and eating a meal you enjoy sounds like a relaxing way to spend a Sunday. Comfort yourself with thoughts of how high the humidity is in Louisiana right now and how nice it is not to be wearing dressed-up clothes and pantyhose.

I plan on making fried okra today and your pickles look and sound delicious, but in truth I'm a little squeamish about the whole okra slime factor.


I would absolutely buy a t-shirt with a picture of a piece of okra and the legend "Embrace the slime" on it.


I love okra pickles and I embrace the slime.


Well, that looks so good that I´m sure it almost made up for the non-wedding.
I´m not very sure what okra tastes like, but you make a very convincing case for it.


Julie-I love fried okra to bits, but seldom make it because I am too lazy to clean up after frying.I'm feeling like I may have to review this policy.
anapestic and steven-it is good to know there are more like me.
l'squad-No okra in Spain? I guess not. It is an important component of gumbo..good stuff. Come to think of it, I've never seen any european okra, in person or pictures. I should think it would grow well in many parts of Spain, being a warm weather crop in the US and in India and Africa.


What an artful photo! It truly looks like something a "food stylist" would have come up with. Okra, OTOH, I haven't touched since my mother had a brief affair with it when I was a child; the slime factor was a big turn-off for me then and I suspect still would be.

Slime factor? Yuk! Didn't know that about okra's, you can get them here (due to Suriname-Holland link) but I've never purchased them because I didn't know what to do with it and they were not very appealing... I quess now I know why. I never ever eat something you have to chase around in your mouth. Oysters? Idem.
I'm sorry you didn't get to go to the wedding, it would have been such pleasure to see someone you've known since a kid getting married, the parents so proud..Too bad.


I'm just like you - I thought I despised okra until I tried it in Indian food! I can't say I'm a huge fan now, but I am intrigued by the pickles - somehow it sounds very, very appealing.

This is an excellent recipe. In an ice bath seems to make the okra until crisp. We can not wait for 4 weeks - is delicious after a week. My son has invested in Iraq and calls for each service package includes a jar of these. Taste of Home Thank you.
