I've always said that I never put anything into a Thai curry that I didn't like (though durian was never put in my curries!). Don't you two have any dishes like that, that you've never made that you didn't like, no matter what was put in it?
Now I'm going to get a craving for a Thai curry...

pondgardener That is why my okra is in my long front flowerbed - the flowers! I have them in the back, with red epazote, rainbow types of chard, and colorful (eventually) hot peppers in the front. Those red okra adds even more color.
Here's another thing that I do with okra, when I have large amounts of it - I dry it, for a snack. I've had this commercially made, but it's fried first, with a LOT of salt. I tried just drying it, and it was too hard to eat! It also did not work in recipes. So instead, I steamed it briefly, then tossed it with some salt, then dried it in the dehydrator. It was better to eat - crunchy, and good, but still not as good as the fried. I'll try cooking it more, before drying, and see if that works.

pepperhead212, I think in the past I have dehydrated them like you did initially and then ran them through the food processor to add to soups and stews to thicken, without my daughter spitting them out or not eating them.

I got mine in over the weekend, since the heat has finally come! I only had 3 out of 18 that I had to re-plant - they had all sprouted, but 2 didn't do much more, and 1 just wasn't looking as good as the rest. Those 3 are already taking off now, so they should catch up quickly.
