Farmers Market Tuesday : OkraPosted: July 19, 2011
WeIl it is Tuesday and that means I got to venture to the farmers market today!!! I almost missed it again but this time it was because of some violent thunderstorms and not a flat tire. Like most of the country we are having a serious heat wave and my AC seems to be constantly running, so why did I even think about turning on the oven tonight??? Because I got my first okra of the season at the farmers market!!!!
My fruit guys also grow veggies and they always have multiple varieties of okra. Did you know there were different species? I love how pretty these purple ones are and even some of them were bi-colored.
So what does one do with okra?
Make okra fries of course!!!
Eat them down to the stem and don’t forget the ketchup!
What do you do with your okra?
Stay cool out there!
