Okra seeds can be planted directly into soil or soaked over night in water or a moist paper towel. Wait one week after last frost to plant. Plant in full sun and well drained soil. Plant 24 inches apart because they grow up to 8 ft tall.
Taste: Okra has a taste similar to green beans or eggplant. I believe the texture is more complex.. Less cook time creates a cruncher bite, while slow cooking adds a easier and complex taste.
Raw from leaf to pods. Great in salads..
Easy to Freeze and use through all recipes.
Roasted with Tomatoes
Grilled with garlic and onions
Breaded and baked
Deep-fried – ohhhh yeah
Sautéed with cashews
My favorite is okra mixed with Hazel & Ash Organics Smoked Paprika Mango Hot Sauce, Jambalaya, shrimp and vegetarian sausage.
