JQ, dearie, my apologies...I've made these tomatoes twice with huge success & am just rememebring to post a review. Please forgive me! the 1st time, I made a huge batch & my littlest finished them for breakfast the next day. The next time, I mae a reasonable amount but dh was eating (made them at his request) & there were no leftovers! I haven't tried the okra - just tomatoes. I needed to use more than 1/2c oil. Thanks for posting!!!
