The often neglected Okra is somewhat of a staple in the South, where it is available fresh 12 months of the year. For the rest of us, Pickled Okra is a real treat, particularly when it tastes this good. The fruit of a large vegetable plant of African origin, Okra, or Nkruma as it was known, found its way to the Americas with the slave ships. While its subtle flavor is sometimes compared to that of Eggplant, Okra has a taste all of its own, especially when pickled. Ours hail from Vidalia, Georgia, and is produced by Prissy's, famed for their high quality Southern specialities, and served in Hyatt Hotels nationwide. Spicy and crisp, these will add delightful flavor to any meal, especially salads. Varieties sold separately.
