Just like the LABEL says, Buy Fresh, Buy Local - Alabama. Well that's the truth! You really can't beat the fruits and vegetables grown right here by local farmers. The PRODUCT ? Some of you from around the globe might be scratching your head over this one. It's a vegetable that most folks around here either love or hate. Chalk me up in the LOVE column. It's good ole southern OKRA! We eat if fried (nectar of the gods) or boiled (the word slimey is sometimes mentioned along with that). We also eat it in gumbo and with corn, tomatoes and lima beans. That would be your succotash. I loved finding this batch of okra displayed in a French wine box. The lowly okra has climbed the food chain perhaps?

The Tune du Jour is " Hang on Little Tomato" by Pink Martini
( I know I play this song a lot, but tomatoes go with okra. What else would I play???)
