Confession: I invented this day. There is no Okra Day, which I personally feel is a travesty. So now there is!
Henceforth, August 13 will be known around the world as International Okra Day!!!
I declare it!
Eat it fried, stewed, or in gumbo; in Southern or Indian cuisine; on its own or with tomatoes. Use fresh or frozen or pickled. Just don't try to eat it raw as that won't work out at all!
Happy okra eating!!
