When we stayed over at my sister’s house earlier this week we all piled in her car and took a drive to Browerville to visit Cherry Grove Market. It’s a quaint hometown grocery store with a decent selection of baked goods, bulk foods and deli items.
We bought some okra chips, which we first learned of from my brother Tim. He gave us a bag of them he couldn’t finish himself. Perhaps an acquired taste, okra chips have a mild flavor but none of the texture you typically associate with okra, thanks to drying. They are lightly salted, but the term “chip” is misleading because they are essentially whole dried okra, bearing little resemblance to a standard chip.
