Like "Aww, come on! the slime ain't that bad. I've loved okra ever since I was a child. Stewed(very slimy), fried, pickled, even raw in a salad. It all tastes like okra! First time I've found it outside of Cajun food. It likes a hot climate, so we grow lots of it here in Texas gardens. I'll give this a try this summer when the crop comes in."
