    3                    Fresh tomatoes or
                         As desired (optional)
 
 Use large aluminum pot, NOT IRON.  Wash, stem and cut okra into 1/2 pcs.
 Season with salt & pepper.  Smother okra in as little oil as possible. When
 almost done, add onion.  Cook onion until tender, add tomatoes.  Let simmer,
 add remaining ingredients and simmer until done.
 
  If there is a favorite vegetable of the South, it is surely okra. Gumbo
 gets its name from the Choctaw Indian word 'Kombo' for any thick soup made
 with okra.
