    • Okra
    • Onions
    • Salt
    • Pepper
    • Granulated Garlic

    Instructions: Wash okra good, making sure you only have young tender pods, then slice 1/4' thick or less. Peel onions and dice medium. Heat oven to 375. Place okra and onions on a greased sheet pan leaving enough room to stir and mix up, ratio of 2:1 or 1: 1 okra:eek:nions, depending on how much you like onions. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and granulated garlic. Put in oven for 10 minutes, stir/flip/mix up good and return to oven for 10 minutes. Check and cook to desired doneness. Take sheet pan out, let cool. Divide up the okra/onions and freeze (I divide into 12 oz packages). Use in gumbo, stew, as a side dish, etc.

    Pickled Okra with a hot kick is awesome, but my source won't share his recipe. Occasionally I manage to pry a jar out of his bony fingers or steal, or barter for a jar. Good snack food for game day.

    tacmo, looks like you need to have a class to polish up your grovelling! Properly done grovelling can't be resisted. Do NOT ask me how I know this! LOLOL

    Okra!!! fried yum!

    @TXKajun does fixing okra like that and then adding to gumbo keep it from getting slimy?

    Ganado, I clean my knife and cutting board when they show signs of getting sticky plus I stir the sheet pans with a plastic coated spatula. This keeps it from sliming up.
