City on a grain of salt. Tuzla means a place of salt and it lays on top of the salt lake. It is suspected it has been there for around 7000 years as one of the oldest places in Europe.

Fancy a chain of okra?

Do you like okra? I do. If it's done properly it can be very delicious.
Unlike in other countries in Bosnia okra gets collected while small, than put on a string and hang out to dry up.
It's been sold like this on our markets.

Very interesting. I have never seen it done that way before. I have to be honest and say I really don't care for okra. How do you fix this dried okra?

I've never seen it like this before. Presumably the fact that it's dried small means that it's not gooey and sticky like mature green okra can be (I like the taste, but sometimes the texture can be a bit ikky!).

I like okra but I've never seen it dried. Does it taste different when it's cooked?
