    No, no, it doesn't get slimy if you cook it whole.

    But of course in a curry you do want it cut up. The "slime" thickens the sauce.

    You can always buy them, run a needle and thread through the stems and hang them until dried. When they are dry the ribs split. Then spray paint silver and gold for icicles for your Christmas Tree. icon_biggrin.gif

    I believe it because neither have I. Being from New England it just doesn't come up in the old recipe box. I love trying new things but Okra was never very high on the list but I just watched a show (Good Eats) that may change that.

    That's how I like it, fried. Never had it any other way.
