Getting Hundreds Of Pounds of Okra From a Single Seed Packet
My post here yesterday on butternut squash as a survival food went well, so here is another recommendation for an emergency seed pack you might want to keep lying around. A few years ago was the last time I grew Okra, I planted the seeds I got from a single pack, which yielded 12 plants which turned into 12 giant trees by the end of the season and produced probably 500lbs of Okra.
I hate growing Okra, it stings your skin when you pick it, you have to pick it constantly, and the taste is love or hate. But if you live somewhere with long, hot summers, its probably worth keeping a seed pack to plant just in case. I planted a few this year just because of the food shortages I'm anticipating, so better safe than sorry.

Slit and spiced stuffed okra
A disclaimer - most people really dislike okra cos it tends to be slimy. The secret is to cook it like it's a mushroom - fry on really high heat, without covering it, so that it doesn't have the chance to steam. The other thing to do is to buy the thinnest ones you can - the fat ones retain water and tend to get squishy and slimy as you cook them
Here's my fave recipe for stuffed bhindi / okra
Make a mix of the masalas
- 2 tablespoon bottle masala (Its kind of intense to make this at home. Its an east Indian masala which I buy. If you can't find this use garam masala but it won't taste the same)
- 1 tablespoon amchur
- 1 teaspoon red chili powder
Take a pound of okra and cut off the heads
Make a slit through the center without cutting it open at either end
Stuff with the masalas mentioned above
Dust the bhindis in about 2 tablespoons of flour
In a pan, Turn the heat on high and add in mustard oil till it smokes. Make sure you add in at least 3 tablespoons for this quantit

My little Okra family photo shoot
What is the vibe of okra?
Okra isn’t a common food where I am, although I’ve seen it around. I want to cook with it, but even though I’ve watched a bunch of videos with it, it’s weirding me out. What does it cook like? The outside looks so tough, and it looks like it has the innards of a capsicum... does it have a zucchini/squash kind of vibe? Choko? Does it soften? I’m trying to imagine chewing it and I’m coming up with an image of some sort of fossilised jalapeño.
This blew up, I’m not gonna be able to reply to these but I love them xx
