Okra comes from a large, tall-growing vegetable plant thought to be of African origin, and it was brought to the United States three centuries ago by African slaves. Famous for its use in our Southern Style Gumbo, the word “gumbo” itself is based on the Central Bantu word for okra, “kigombo”, via the Caribbean Spanish “guingambó” and is in the same plant family as hibiscus and cotton. Okra can be served raw, marinated in salads, breaded & deep fried or sautéed (as it goes particularly well with tomatoes, onions, corn, peppers, and eggplant). In addition, whole, fresh okra pods make excellent pickles. Okra’s mild flavor can be compared to eggplant, though its sticky flesh texture makes it somewhat unusual in the vegetable family.
