Homemade Pickled Okra







"In the South, perhaps more than any other region, we go back to our home in dreams and memories, hoping it remains what it was on a lazy, still summer's day twenty years ago."

It's the simplicity in it all... While others seem to have lost the art form of givin', helpin' a person in need that can never truly repay you- The South clings to it like summers of long past. A simple Facebook post about pickled okra. How as a Southerner I'd shammed myself for never takin' a bite. A post so simple in nature, that post, that post that lead to such a sweet gesture. I wouldn't expect anythin' less livin' in The South. I came home, still thinkin' about the picked okra, i'd had yet to taste. A pretty bag with music tissue paper lay awaitin' for me. One glance and I knew what await. I eagerly took the contents and rushed them in the fridge. I may not have eaten picked okra but I knew it'd be better chilled. I was excited. It was even canned and homemade. Right up my alley.

The okra tasted better than I expected. For someone who'd only eaten it fried and in my gumbo I was impressed. Impressed beyond measure.

So... Mrs. Martha, thank you for the friendship-selflessness that showed itself in a jar of pickled okra.


In the spirit of givin':

Basic with a southern twist

SHARE THIS | PIN-IT | TWEET IT

















Why basic with a Southern twist? Cause with Ride or Die we are the most basic duo. When we found out the fair had fried pumpkin spice oreo's we just had to try them. Ride or Die's sister texted her and goes, "basic with a southern twist."

So much fried food in my belly. In Texas if it can be cooked we can fry it. Some of the fried foods we had:

  • Fried pumpkin spice oreo
  • fried snickers 
  • fried sweet tea
  • fried biscuits and gravy
  • fried sriracha balls  
 If your state has already had it's fair, what was your favorite thing or food?
