Okra by andiwolfe

I'm not particularly fond of this fruit, usually treated as a vegetable. Okra is from a plant in the Hibiscus family. When cooked, there is a slimy consistency, which is used to good effect in various southern dishes involving the word, "gumbo." Fried okra is a bit more acceptable to my palate, but I try to avoid this type of southern food as well. I guess my "Damned Yankee" status is still intact....
