Is there anything they can be compared to in terms of taste? Quite literally, the only thing I tasted the first time was vinagar. True, what a shame.

Southern boy here! Fried Okra is a staple here. Serious Yum.

I love so many foods! I'll be giving this thing a work-out!

You know, it's been so long since I've eaten them that I don't remember. Mama's been gone over 20 years now. I really do have a few green tomatoes left on one of my tomato plants so I'm going to cook them tomorrow and let you know, Timothy!

I knew I could count on you, Kayelle! I'll have to look at a couple markets for some here.

I went ahead and unpaced it, set it up, and read the manual. I'm ready now. Just need some oil, and something to cook in it other than fritters.

Wonder how it was when it was paced.

Maybe try some olives or grapes, fully dried and rolled in cream cheese, nuts and crumbs. I recently gave a friend a Costco cookbook, and she raved about the goat cheese/cream cheese/ grapes rolled in nuts, which she served at a big party.

With a new toy like that, I would be looking at everything as a candidate for deep frying! Watch out, Dinky!

Ha! When I threaten Dinky with my utmost threat, I get out the Chinese Cookbooks. Many of them refer to: "Or use any white meat you prefer". Dinky is on to me! He sees those books come out and he runs for the hills! I think my eyebrows give me away!
Evil Cook looks at Kitty!

(I gotta get out more)

That's ok....it only becomes a problem if your pants size has three digits.
