Another family favorite that really doesn't have a recipe because you can add more or less of any of the ingredients. It's perfect for when the tomatoes are hanging ripe on the vine and the okra pods are young and tender. Enjoy!
3 cups of chopped ripe tomatoes
1/2 red onion chopped
1 small jalapeno, diced OR 1 small green bell pepper, diced
1 clove garlic minced
10 - 12 okra pods, ends trimmed and sliced 1/4" thick
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 t. sugar
In a small saucepan, add all ingredients and heat to a gentle simmer over medium low heat. Let simmer for an hour or so until okra is very tender. Taste and adjust seasonings, if needed.
