After they are vacuum fried, packaged and shipped to your local Fresh Market, what you end up with are these wonderful, sort of crystallized okra pods that are crunchy and irresistible.
They look a little like thinly blown glass, but they have the flavor of traditional fried okra without the batter.
I think you can order them online from Fresh Market or you may be lucky enough to pick some up at your local location. I'm serious about someone showing me how to make these. I have got to have more and more and more okra chips!! Try them out and let me know what you think. WARNING: They are addictive!
Dear Food Network and the Travel Channel,
Where have your manners gone? Why is it that some of your hosts cannot take appropriate bites of food, chew with their mouths closed and not talk with a full mouth? My Mama would slap me, even today, if I did that. What kind of image is that sending to viewers? With all of the bad stuff going on in the world today the least we can do is use good manners. Taking huge bites of food does not make it taste any better. I don't want to see your food swirling around in your mouth while you are chewing and talking. That is the grossest thing ever. Andrew Zimmern, if I hear your jaw pop one more time I'm going to scream. Will someone please teach these people some manners?!!!
How do you feel about it?
