I was among friends last week, discussing the virtues of okra.
Some preferred to categorize the “slime” as a “thickening agent” while others insisted you need to be a wood pecker to eat one.
The little ones are best, of course, but often they get too big to be edible.
While okra is indeed a great thickening agent in gumbo and other quintessential southern dishes, there is another plant lurking in the garden that can do the same- and you can usually just find it growing along a path or in the flower garden.
