6 comments on “The Secret History of Okra – Okra Soup

  1. So happy to have you on board Michael!


  2. One of my Favorites. Whether in soups or fried or simply in the Garden. Okra has been a staple in my house growing up and as I’ve gotten Grown.

    I cooked up a batch of fried okra last night and we ate the whole thing…leaving the rest of dinner for us to eat tonight. But we have no okra left, alas.


  4. “Funny, you don’t look Jewish” an oldie / I never had good luck with okra because it was always prepared so yucky.

      Saute the okra lightly before stewing it or adding it to a dish and that will solve the slime problem.


  5. I bought a crate of okra from the State Farmer’s Market and cut it up and froze it to use in Oct. for gumbo for a benefit auction. I hope there will be some left for us to fry and use in gumbo this winter.
