"Okra, also known as ladies fingers, is a mild tasting vegetable that produces a thick juice that is often used for sauces.
These green seed pods can be cooked in a variety of ways, whole or sliced: okra can be fried, grilled, sauteed or pan-roasted, and is most often used in soups and stews.
Known for its slimy consistency, Okra is popular in dishes such as gumbo.
For those who wish to avoid this, ensure the okra is patted dry before cooking at a high heat.
This organic okra has the added benefit of being produced without chemical fertilizers or pesticides."
