So you are saying "pill-peel" what the difference? Let's move on to a less hairy subject!

Or one of those 'health food' stores. They are very
entertaining.

This word always makes me think of okra, for some reason. :?

I've never had any, but I gather okra is a usually greasy dish.

Not greasy, more like slimy. :shock:

...and with that I realize that the word I had in mind was not oleaginous, but mucilaginous. :o

On that note, I think I abstain from ever eating okra.

Don't give up hope - it can be prepared in a delicious manner. Our local curry house does a fantastic bhindi bhaji that somehow uses the texture of the vegetable in a very toothsome way. It's quite dry, fennel is involved.

I like fennel. I don't think I've ever even seen okra
at the grocery, but then I've never looked for it. Will
have to do it next time. Perhaps with the right recipe......

I'd go with something like:

Vary other spices as liked / available but make sure the fennel is involved.

I'm hungry now.

Re: Okra. My Uncle Looney always liked boiled okra. It was so easy to eat. Put it in your mouth and you don't even have to bother to swallow. It just slides right down.

On a serious note, I know there are Yankees and other outlanders who eschew things that set well on a Southerner's palate. To me there is nothing better than sitting down to a big plate of fried okra, candied sweet potatoes, black eyed peas smothered in my wife's marvelous chow-chow, a slice of ham and a big chunk of corn bread.

My wife and I each take six daily meds. Even trying to call in several at once, they know me well at the drug store. But I've never in my. Life seen pilgarlic.

Some things are better chewed than es-chewed, and vice versa. :wink:

This New York born-and-bred "grandson of the South" :) can eat a bit of fried okra. Love sweet potatoes cooked any way; I don't get to eat black eyed peas nearly often enough; I have to be very careful with ham, because it might be that I like it too much; and I love cornbread. My mom used to make it with cheese and onion, at my dad's insistence; I need to learn how to make that. Every recipe I find puts the cheese on top, not in it like mom did. I need to break down and ask her how she did it...
