Do you like cooked tomatoes? If you have a can of okra, add it to a pot, then add a jar/can of tomatoes (not the kind with peppers in it, just tomatoes). Put a little onion (maybe 1/4 of an onion, diced) in the mixture, add some salt and pepper, then add about 1/4 - 1/2 Cup of white sugar to it. Add water until it covers the ingredients. Some people don't like the sugar, but I love it - it's how I learned to cook/eat the two (okra and tomatoes) cooked together. Boil it over a medium heat until the okra is tender..... be careful not to let the water cook out.
And you guessed it - the name of the dish is Okra n Tomatoes. LOL
