Coat (dredge) it as you would fried okra, but bake it on a sheet cake pan at 450Â°F for 30-35 minutes. Salt it after you remove it from the oven--I prefer garlic salt.

Yes, Okra is also known as lady's fingers, bhindi or gumbo.

Boiled okra is sometimes an acquired taste. It is very mild in flavor, but has a tendency to be "slimy", meaning that it develops a "sauce" of it's own. To make boiled okra, select small pods because they will be more tender. Wash the pods and put into salted boiling water. Cook about three minutes, then pour the water off and put in fresh water to avoid the slimy effect. Boil about 6 minutes more… Read More

Okra is grown as a vegetable. yum (GROSS)

The longer one cooks it the thicker the 'slime' will get. This is one reason okra is often used to thicken soups. However, if you pan-fry sliced okra in butter or oil on medium, and constantly stir it, the thick slime will completely dry out. The okra will shrivel somewhat, but there will be NO slime. This is a long process, but well worth it. Don't be alarmed if the okra and/or seeds turns dark… Read More

I am getting $1.00 per pound. The price is higher in the early spring and falls off into lat fall.
Okra that has black spots should not be eaten. Okra pods will be green and firm when they are fresh.
No Okra is not supposed to have black spots on it. Depending on the variety , some okra may have 'reddish' colored spots on it as it starts to turn to seed. Those are too woody to eat. You only want to eat the smaller softer pods.
I don't know how to make a cream, but am seeking an answer to how one makes okra pepsin fromfresh okra
The edible portion is the seed pod also called the fruit. It's a fruit because you are primarily eating the fleshy plant that encloses and protects the seed. Yes tomatoes are technically fruit.

Yes, but only if you first dip the okra in beaten eggs. Unlike flour, cornmeal does not adhere to surfaces, especially dry and smooth ones. Coating the okra with beaten eggs (or egg whites only) will make the cornmeal stick and provide a nice crisp outer layer to fried food.
Okra is a green vegetable.

Try sprinkling your okra or any other plants with talcum powder.It is an organic alternative to harmful pesticides. Try a product called Diatomaceous earth. Its sold at most gardening places and will deter ants from the plant if sprinkled around the base of the stalk. It works because it consists of fossilized diatoms. One celled fossils, that if magnified look like porcupines. Ants have segmented bodies and these points irritate the ants bodies where the… Read More

Add this to a soup pot, add a little water if necessary and cook until the okra is no longer crunchy. Add salt and pepper to taste. The last time I cooked this, my wife had never tried it… Read More
Mucilage is a thick, gluey substance found in many plants . Cactus and flax seed have the highest amounts of mucilage, but okra, marshmallow, and psyllium also have high mucilage content. Adding water to the mucilage produces a glue.
Answer The vinegar allows for a chemical reaction that actually removes the "slim" effect that okra tends to do when cut. I think 'slim' is a typo for 'slime'. Slim is good, but perhaps not in this context. Okras are known for their unpopular sliminess, whereas 'slim' is usually perceived as a positive. I don't see the relevance of slimming in this context. Please check and correct if I'm right, otherwise ignore this posting, although… Read More

Okra and okra seeds contain trace amounts of gossypol, a polyphenolic aldehyde with male contraceptive properties that is also found in higher concentrations in cottonseed. The amounts present in okra seeds are too low to have any noticeable effect even if you ate an enormous amount in one sitting. Concentrated gossypol tablets have been tested as a male contraceptive but generally found to be too dangerous. There isn't a big difference between the dosage of… Read More

There's not tons of info available on this topic, but here's what I could find: Some people do list okra as a rabbit-safe food, and the HRS does not identify it as poisonous (see links below), so it's probably safe for your bunny to eat. Generally speaking, leaves, flowers, and stems are better for rabbits than fruit (with okra, that's the seed pod -- the part that we eat). Okra fruit, like all fruit, should… Read More
The definition of a fruit is anything containing seeds. Okra has seeds and is therefore a fruit. Weird but true. Same goes with tomatoes, pumpkins, peppers, squash, etc. A vegetable would be an onion or potato.
Boiled okra is still okra. Hot water does not change what it is.
For whole okra, trim the stem just shy of the pod, cutting into the pod will cause the pod to dry even if frozen. Then bring a pot of water with a dash of salt to a full boil and blanch the okra for about 3 minutes. Next shock the okra in a pot of ice water for a few minutes. Then pat dry with a paper towel, and place into a freezer bag and… Read More

It depends what you want to use it for. You get it as a byproduct when you boil okra for eating (it's in the water). I was looking for a way to use it as a formation aid in papermaking, which allows the fibers to be suspended longer for smoother, more even paper. According to Papermaking with Garden Plants & Common Weeds by Helen Hiebert (excerpt found through Google Books), Tom Bennick puts half a… Read More

Some of my Okra plants are >10 feet. We are able to water and have rain. We live in east Texas. We have three rows about 240 feet total. Will pick until frost.
Mix the sap with flour and hot water, I'm not sure of proportions though.
In some areas, it's called gumbo.
When I pick okra, I do not notice any pain from a burning sensation, however I do notice that my hands feel extremely slick for a few hours after picking okra. If I wash my hands or otherwise get my hands wet, they are very slick, as if I have hand soap suds on them. Have no idea why this is as I purposely do not get any of the sap onto my skin, just… Read More

If you live down in the south, then it would be a great plant to grow on your garden. But for people living in northern states they would have… Read More
