For all the okra lovers, this will be a treat. Okra Gumbo is a side dish that my Mom made every summer. It reminds me of my childhood, Mom in the kitchen frying okra and the wonderful smell of bacon and tomato. I’ve never found any recipe that is quite like Mom’s, and believe me I’ve looked. I’ll have to cook this from memory, I don’t think the recipe is written anywhere and I don’t ever want to forget it. It’s just that good!
