for those who can drink Perrier water.....the taste is awesome after you eat an artichoke!

Thanks, Lola.  I think I'll try that nutritional yeast spread on a rice cake.

Anybody try the okra and black eyed pea recipe in Recipe Central?


Just tried this tonight and added a bit of pineapple juice and a small amount of diced up pineapple pieces.. DELICIOUS!

Have you tried adding tomatoes at the end of cooking the okra with garlic and onions? Takes away the slime!

My husband also blanches fresh ones and lets them chill and then eats them like celery..takes a while to aquire the taste

By the way, Down here, two okra plants feed a family all summer. They produce daily and if you do not get them off quickly, they are too big and seedy to eat!

What variety are you talking about? I'm all ears! I would love to be able to enjoy okra with only two plants! Amazing!

For sure the elegant bittersweet taste of the artichokes is a gourmet habit ! and Italian people as French like to try  to be gourmets.
Please enjoy for me eggplant, mussels and octopus !
Have a nice day !

In super SOUTH Texas we have monsoon rains and then hot, hot summers. the heat makes the okra grow like a weed..no special plant needed, just 8 hours of sun like tomoates. By the way we have 2 tomatoe seasons, February 14th that gives in June and August that gives before Thanksgiving!Lots of backwork needed to keep it going!

Our okra grows like weed too, but each plant only produces a pod like every other day.  I guess we eat a whole lot more okra than most people would.  I fry up 1 1/2 lb. at a time and we down it in one meal easily.  We'd love to eat this much two or three days a week.  That's a lot of okra.
