My favorite way to use okra, and besides...it is good. I usually make this in the summer when okra is plentiful, but I have also used frozen okra successfully. NOTE: I should have put this notice here before, but just didn't think! Okra should be chopped by hand. The food processor makes it way to slimey to work with.
