i am an okra fan though!

Grace said...

pickled okra, eh? the only way i've ever eaten is fried, and boy, it's great like that. perhaps it's time for me to branch out and try something different. :)

I've done okra in fritters and I've fried it and put it in gumbo, but I can't handle it boiled or pickled for some reason.

These photos are great! Check you out! They really tell the story. We are still eating last year's sweet pickled okra, so we may just have an epic okra roast instead of pickling. And h ey, thanks for the community cookbook bump!
