    Now this just seems wrong. I guess we all must make sacrifices. But I do remember being told that if it turns green throw it out. Although, I never remember hearing that about the hated green slimy okra.

    @Sheldon Scott , Pleaseeeeee remove your curse. I've had a couple of really bad years, and I'm counting on this year being worth at least smiling about.

    Do you boil your okra for a long time. YUCK!!! My father liked it that way. Now I do like okra dredged in cornmeal and deep fried, or even pickled. YUMMY!!!

    I first remember seeing okra as an unknown (to me) veggie in my Campbell's vegetable soup when I was a little girl. I spooned one out, and showed it to my mother, and she explained that it was called okra. I still had no clue what okra really looked like, since all I saw was a thin slice in the soup.
    I never saw any other form of okra until I married Bobby a few years ago (well actually, almost 14 years ago, now). Since he is from Louisiana, he loves okra, and we used it when we had the cafe in Idaho.
    Now, I really enjoy okra, and I put it in soups, spaghetti, and almost anything that has veggies in it. I saw that it can also be pickled, and have never tried that. I will eventually get a jar of that at the store, just so I can see what okra tastes like when it is pickled.

    I fixed the curse so that it will be automatically removed when the first slimy pod of okra goes down your throat.:D

    We boil, fry, pickle, put in soup, cook in a pot of peas, cook okra & tomatoes. Okra is good in lots of ways.

    Thank you @Sheldon Scott , I do love okra cooked in all those ways, but I'm sure you wouldn't just boil okra all by itself for a couple hours. The only thing my German father did was cut it up, and that just turned it into a slimy mess. I had to sit at the table all night a age six because I wouldn't eat that stuff.

    @Yvonne Smith , I'm pretty sure you know how to pickle foods. Try putting the okra up in it's whole form, add some favorite peppers, and I like to add fresh cauliflower to it. Two or three with a little cheese and I'm full.

    The plants are pretty. Ours grew between four and five feet tall, and they have beautiful yellow flowers. They remind me of sun flowers.
