Okra

vegetable

Growing:

Start seeds indoors a couple weeks before last frost. Wait a couple weeks after last frost to plant starts in garden. Space plants a foot or more apart. Harvest the pods of the plant by cutting them off when they are 23 inches long.

Selecting & Storing:

Okra pods should be about 3 inches long, bright green, soft, and fuzzy. Wrap in paper towel and put in an open bag/container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Basic Preparation:

If you are not familiar with using okra, here's your warning: it has a slime factor. The more it's sliced, the slimier it becomes. Many soups/stews use okra specifically for it's thickening properties due to it's sticky core.

Aside from being used as an ingredient in recipes, it can be steamed, sauted or stir-fried whole. Try Sauteing it in a little oil until lightly brown along with some onions and peppers.
