Well, I am from Oklahoma. Okra was never sevred. It wasn’t even on the menu. I lived Miami and Tulsa. Been to OKC, Grove, Bartlesville, Stillwater, Broken Arrow, Norman, and Vinta. Never have sevred okra in the cities or the country. Some of the foods that might be more popular are minced pies, apple pies, mashed potatoes, pecan dishes. crappie, catfish, bass. Corn Bread is very good.I now live in Cleveland. The chilli only popular in southern Ohio while pierogies are popular throughout the state.
