Popcorn Okra

This week I was happy to have 6 okra pods ready for picking (keep in mind I have one small row of okra). I picked them and anxiously tried out the directions given by a helpful gardener from the "Helpful Gardener Forum"! (To read more about Clemson Spineless Okra and the details of this recipe CLICK HERE.

Washed, removed top, & chopped okra

Added oil to pan, added salt & pepper, and began to heat.

Continued stirring & heating until blackened just right!

This was a very tasty treat! It really does heat down to a lot less, (as you can see in the photos). This only made a tiny bowl for teasing me! But, it was worth it and has inspired me to grow many more okra plants next year!
