I must say, for now at least that I am one of those people who are mean to okra... but in return they have never been very nice to my tastebuds either... Anyhow someone told me here on the board once "unslimy" type of okra indeed exist, which are quite nice. I am willing to give them a chance if I ever find them.

And I am not fond of fennel either.

Okra taste like the most wonderful gulf coast gumbo that I have ever eaten. Okra taste like cornmeal battered and sizzlin in a hot pan of grease. Okra taste like a cajun kabob.
