1. "Other"
The vegetable that cums in your mouth.


And I don't mean that in a good way.

2. Oh holy fucking Jesus on a flaming marshmallow stick!
That's simply sick - but I can see where the analogy is warranted.

5. It was a toss up between pan fried and in a Gumbo
I chose pan fried because you get (IMO) more flavor when fried in a well seasoned cast Iron skillet.

12. WTF am I, chopped liver?
:)

I may have relocated, but:

"My home's in Alabama
No matter where I lay my head.
My home's in Alabama,
Southern born and Southern bred".

Oh, I almost forgot. Pan fried! Yum yum.

11. WOO HOO! Cast iron is the BEST!
I do corn bread in a cast iron skillet. There's nothing better.

14. There's a batch in the oven right now.
Got poblanos in it.
I remember granny's 'plain ol' cornbread.
It was OK, but now?
You can put in some cheese, carmelized onions, corn or creamed corn, jalapenos, etc., etc.
It's become almost a meal in itself.
There's no end to it.
Yum.

16. Man, you are making me want to go back to Aunt Pitty Pat's porch in ATL
They used to have a side dish bar that had everything from spoon bread to any kind of corn bread you could imagine.

18. Okra is slimy.
ONLY acceptable in gumbo. Every other incarnation of okra is nasty!

17. It's amazing how many people hate this African plant

27. Pickled okra is candy to me.
I like it just about any way, but pickled is dangerous. I have to limit myself to three or four at a pop or I'll down the entire jar.

30. All of 'em, but you left out stewed.
A good pan of okra stewed with tomatoes... If you don't like that you're a Rick Astley-loving zombie, if you ask me. :P

31. I could eat fried okra for breakfast, lunch,
dinner, and dessert with corn pudding, When I had a veggie garden okra was my main ingredient along with the most beautiful and luscious huge Big Boy tomatoes stuffed with chicken salad.

32. I love okra pan-fried. Just dust it with a little corn meal, flour, salt & pepper
and cook it in a cast iron skillet in some bacon fat until it's crispy and browned all over.

34. Okra
is a highly under rated veggie. I love it just about any way. And I ain't from 'Lanta, although that's where I first encountered it.
