“I love okra !! yummy. This Recipe has come from watching my aunt as I was a little girl making this delicious concoction, the smell of this cooking oh my!! This recipe comes from south Louisiana, If you have some okra lovers, I suggest doubling this recipe. Also this recipe can be used with squash instead of okra, it is just as delicious as the okra!!! Just don't use the tomatoes with the squash, not unless you would like it that way, but do try the squash once without the tomatoes.”
