In the south fried okra is much the same as popcorn elsewhere.

Mustard greens, turnip greens, okra, purple hulls, beet greens, just requires a miracle to find here. I used to have to get dried pinto beans at a health food shop. Hush puppies, meatloaf, chicken fried steak NOT a clue. Being from south Tx. don't even get me started on mexican. Makes you wonder. At one time this little island had an empire that covered a very large portion of the globe. How did they become so backward when it came to food? I try to introduce my friends to as many new things as possible and I haven't had one complaint. They would eat me outta house and home if I let 'em. They understand good food when they taste it but when they see the raw ingredients they just have NO idea what to do with it, hence the stuff is tuff to find. Having said, the British CERTAINLY are adaptable. They are learning quickly and embracing new foods and ideas. Keep at it my friend I will just suffer in silence from now on. Keep Smokin!
Danny there is no reason you couldn't grow some of this stuff. I mean its all weeds to begin with. Doesn'tr take much room to grow. Its a weed so it doesn't take any effort.

I love okra! (And love how it uh, well, "clears one out" and allows one to get a lot of reading done so to speak)! Smiles.
Fabulous food! Great thread! Thanks for sharing.
Cheers and happy Tuesday! - Leah
All the great foods have a cleansing ability, okra, greens, beans, etc etc...... Thats is why all the rich folks are all stuffy, they are all plugged up...LOL
