Okra – Boiled – No Slime Trick

I wish I had book marked this blog, but I didn’t so of course I don’t know who to credit with this easy to cook No Slime boiled okra.

I wish someone had taught me this No Slime Boiled Okra trick 50 years ago.

Pick smallish tender okra. Pick enough to feed you and your family.

Wash Okra. Leave Okra whole.
Bring 2 cups salted water to a boil.
You may need more water if your cooking a lot of Okra.
Add 1 tablespoon vinegar to your boiling salted water.
Put Okra in the boiling water.
Return to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer covered for about 8 to 13 minutes until tender.
Plate Okra, serve and enjoy your No Slime Boiled Okra.

Happy Gardening

  5. That tip is solid gold, thank you! I’ve never liked or eaten okra beyond the first time because of its slime! I know putting vinegar in water when you boil eggs makes them easier to peel also.
