Fried okra, okra gumbo, boiled okra, and one of my favorite,"pickled okra". Okra is considered a delicacy and is on the expensive side. It's best young, tender, and fresh; otherwise, it starts turning black spotty quickly and is no longer pleasing to the eye. Dried okra pods make adorable Santa Claus ornaments. You can put 5 together and make a "starfish". I'm offering an svg and digi stamp. (PS I will add legs to the okra soon per request of a follower and post back.).
