EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Okra is a signature ingredient for gumbo. The vegetable, which is popular in the South, adds flavor and helps thicken the sauce. The name gumbo actually is a derivation of the African word for "okra."

Bake your favorite corn bread muffins, and serve them hot from the oven with plenty of creamy honey-butter. They're ideal companions to this spicy Creole specialty. Serve with a pitcher of cool and refreshing iced tea and slices of whipped cream-topped pecan pie for dessert.
