Everything in moderation! Okra has a signature flavor that truly enhances some dishes, but it also has a characteristic "slime" factor that, if overdone, can certainly detract from the "mouth feel" of the dish. From my experience, most people who say they don't like okra have either never tried it and are basing their judgement off of an erroneous reputation, or they have had an unfortunate overdone "slime" experience that overshadowed the enjoyable flavor. To those who turn up their nose at okra, I say, "Wonderful! More for me!". Dale

Don't forget the sweet potato casserole with caramelized brown sugar topping! It's usually served as a vegetable dish, but I save it for dessert! YUM!!

I love pickled okra and buy this brand often. It's a great garnish in a Bloody Mary in place of a dilly bean, carrots or celery!

I hope everyone had a great okra growing season this year! If you missed the annual Okra Festival in Burkville, Alabama, this Fall, you - well, uhhh - you missed a bunch of okra!

Jim G, my usual response to anyone who hates a certain food is "you just haven't had it properly cooked", not speaking of how the world considers it proper, just you and your tastebuds and gag reflex. Despised slimy okra till we got to Captain D's and found fried - Wonderful. Also Marjorie Kinan Rawlings had a recipe for small new okra-leave cap on, steam exactly 5 minutes, serve with Hollandais, finger food. Haven't tried it yet, maybe someday.
Canned spinach actually made me throw up the one time the cafetaeria lunch lady tried to make me eat it in elementary school. My ex insisted on getting fresh spinach and fixing it as per an Italian down-home cookery book. I discovered that sautéed with real butter, chopped onions and garlic, spinach is to die for...
My daughter HATES lima beans, everyone else in the family loves them. I didn't tell her what was in in fried beanballs I served her vegetarian daughter, but DD said it was all right. It was mashed canned limas, kidneys, and chickpeas mashed with egg and rolled in Italian seasoned breadcrummbs before frying in real butter.

And as for "healthy" eating, the "epidemic" of obesity metabolic disorder and diabetes concided with and worsened along with the changes in diet by the nutritionists- as far as I am considered one caused the other.

Given recent predictions for food trends in 2017, maybe "Purple Okra" could be the hot new health food! Now plant breeders just need to figure out how to make purple okra.

Easter Sunday is only two weeks away! If you haven't started your okra seeds yet, at least here in the South, you're running behind! Get some seeds and soil and get going!!

Well, if you weren't in Burkville, Alabama, today, you missed it again - the world famous (in a small world way) Annual Okra Festival.
Okra Festival - - Alabama.travel
Always held the last Saturday in August. Put it on your calendar for 2018!
