    Wickles Wicked Okra...

    This stuff is great. Its really spicy and super tasty! Its a bit Southern so you may or may not have it wherever you are but you can always get it from Amazon. https://wicklespickles.com/product/wicked-okra/

    When I was in Missouri I got fresh okra super cheap and it was great.

    I love it, breaded and deep fried. Glorious, great for thickening stews and soups. All the restaurants there made it.

    I know the "slimy" thing turns people off but that was the best part of it for me.

    I so wish I could get some here in the desert but it's all avocados and stuff from Mexico and California.
    my junk is ugly

    You can order it from Amazon. You can get it elsewhere on the net a bit cheaper. If you like Okra , you'll love this. https://www.amazon.com/Wickles-Wicke...WW2?th=1&psc=1

    Not sure why they added sugar to it. Otherwise it looks good. I like okra.

    I suppose the sugar is for the sweet heat taste so popular in the South. You should try a jar. Actually get two jars. You'll eat one as soon as it arrives.

    Sounds tasty except for the "CALCIUM CHLORIDE, NATURAL FLAVORS, POLYSORBATE 80" that it contains.

    My late mother-in-law was from Tuscumbia, Alabama, so the wife grew up eating okra and later fixing it herself. I pretended to like it for a couple of years, till I just couldn't do it any more. I guess it's just an acquired taste. I grew up eating broccoli, cauliflower, the occasional brussell sprouts, none of which she can stand to be downwind of at any point. I don't know...maybe if it were prepared so that it was really, really crisp and I was allowed to put ketchup on it...

    I've only ever tried fried okra. I remember it being bland but then again it was only breaded and had no seasoning nor sauce on it. That was when we had catfish and frog legs at the boat club on the river with my country bumpkin cousins in rural Illinois. LOL Everything was fried even the vegetables.

    Wickles is so good you dont even have to like Okra to like it. Guarentee if you like a little spice, you'll love it. "Tuscumbia" huh? I have family close to there. Sweet Home Alabama !
