Fried okra is good. Never had it in a stew.
I can get pickled okra in the grocery store here, without much of a problem. Yes, in the godless Northeast, pickled okra is available.
As for what it's like? Someone I used to know, after eating one, pronounced that "they're hairy, and they taste like feet."
I didn't ask him where he learned what feet taste like. I sincerely hope to Goddess that his girlfriend's feet never resembled pickled okra in either scent or flavor.

Doesn't sound too bad. I'll have to see if I can find some that won't conflict with my vegetarian metabolism after I move to Greensboro. (In the South, cooking something in chicken fat, as opposed to pork fat, is "diet".)
