Okra is impossible to find around here except for in the summertime. I think that is when it is in season. Anyway, I got a pound or two this afternoon and blanched them. I will freeze them for future soups, rice , gumbos and jambalays.
Okra is not everyone's cup of tea but I really like it. It is eaten a lot in Brazil and Africa and I suppose that is where I developed the taste for it. I know it wan't in Crumlin.
