I just found this forum, so forgive me if I'm posting this in the wrong place! Now on to my question. I hope someone can help me. I recently enjoyed a wonderful meal of "Shrimp Belvedere" from Savannah Dreams cookbook. Do you know how impossible it is to find fresh okra in Colorado in the fall? I have lots of pickled okra, so I'm wondering if I can use it in this dish. I would think it would need to be rinsed first. Anyone have an easy answer for a displaced Louisiana girl in Colorado?
