Being my hubby's from the south, he loves his Okra and I actually acquired a taste for it, once I learned to grow and cook it. This was one of the first of many Okra recipes I've put together, sort of based on one he tried explaining, that his mother would make. He enjoyed mine so much, that he requests it all of the time, especially in the summer, when we had an abundance of it in our garden. We've not had a garden now in a few years, so I miss having my Okra, so I had to resort to store bought, which works in a pinch, but if you have fresh, by all means use it.
