I LOVE it, & grow it every year in the garden - heck, even in containers on the deck, since it's such an attractive plant.

I use it (of course!) in gumbos & jambalaya, & if I'm doing a quicky Zatarain's version, fresh okra really adds a spark. I also add it to soups, stirfries, & stewed tomatoes, & also enjoy it both fried & pickled.

Like it a lot. Dredged in cornmeal and fried, in soups, stewed tomatoes and okra. Good stuff.

Never tried it. The description of it as 'slimy' is a bit of a turn-off. One day I'll get round to it.

Can anyone give me a 'tastes a bit like....' description?
