Are you sure? The article you linked didn't say a thing about her being there.

I beg to differ... Eventually the babys nose dries up. Boiled okra slime is forever.

BTW - I like mine breaded in corn meal and pan fried in olive oil w/ garlic. Frozen okra works best in the application because it is already blanched thus releasing some of the afore-mentioned goo.
  • Throw frozen okra in the pan w/o oil and turn on the heat.
  • When the okra starts to thaw, sprinkle it with corn meal until no more will stick.
  • Pour in oil and sizzle it up.
  • Add some salt and pepper and a little garlic just before it's done.
  • Serve with lemon wedges.

Never have had fried okra, not really a fried food fan.

I do love gumbo, okra and all. In the last couple of years you can actually find some okra for sale up here on occasion. So does okra work in gumbo because the booger part disintegrates?

2. So - Ok, I'm not Aunt Purl. Try mine - it looks just like hers when finished and uses fewer ingredients. If you want to serve it upscale, put it on a plate (that frypan will scorch your corian).

Good point. Do you have nieces or nephews?
