I learn a wonderful description of the style of okra in one in all my favourite cookbooks, “The Vegetable Butcher.” Cara Mangini writes that the vegetable combines “notes of eggplant, inexperienced beans and asparagus.” I feel that’s right.

For years, I solely ate okra that was reduce into small items, battered, and fried or simmered in gumbos, however as I acquired older and commenced to experiment, I found its versatility and realized to like the feel and taste it brings to so many dishes. like this Heat Okra, Tomato and Bacon Salad from “Southern and Smoked” by Jarred I. Zeringue. The restaurateur is a giant advocate of consuming what’s in season, and his cookbook of greater than 80 recipes, subtitled “Cajun Cooking By the Seasons,” is split that means. This salad, after all, lands in the summertime chapter.

You probably have an okra plant, you’ll know that they’re prolific in case you decide the pods incessantly. As Zeringue notes, “okra should be picked every day and served contemporary or will probably be too powerful to eat.”

Tender okra pods which are 2 to three inches lengthy are greatest for this dish. If you cannot discover a contemporary inventory at a farmer’s market or grocery retailer, take into account shopping for frozen okra and thawing it earlier than cooking. If the okra is tender sufficient, you may merely slice it lengthwise from stem to tip. If it is a bit of tougher, chances are you’ll want to chop off the caps and suggestions.
