Okra isn't the first (or seventh) vegetable most people think to buy when they go to the farmers' market. Known primarily for its use in heavy Southern dishes and infamously for its ability to become slimy because of its natural mucilage, okra isn't flying off the stands. The way to keep the slime factor down with okra is to cook it for a long time (like in gumbo) or a short time (like in a stir fry). But why cook it at all? I prefer to pickle okra. Processed this way, the okra stays crisp, tastes great and, more important, no slime.

Football season is upon us, and with it, tailgates. This year, think outside the traditional burger-and-dog grilling session with Bird's Nest Barbecue owner Tim Brown's gooey Cuban sandwiches, served Maryland-style, with pit ham and pulled pork.  Brown piles sourdough bread high with Swiss cheese, pickles, spicy mustard and, of course, pit ham and pulled pork butt, grilling the sandwiches until they are warm, messy and delicious - perfect fuel...

My friends think I'm weird because I consistently instruct waiters and waitresses to smother my sandwiches with pickles. No matter how many times I try to explain -- on a ham sandwich, the dills' crunch offsets the soft meat, the sourness offsets the blandness, the wetness offsets the dryness -- my friends still look at me funny. All this time, I thought it was me.But, upon researching this story, I now realize it's the pickles that make everybody act a little strange. "You're doing a story on what?"

Barbara Daniel of Cross Lanes, W.Va., was looking for a "good old" recipe for making pickled green beans. She said that her grandmother always made them, but most of her recipes are long gone. Gene Fisher from Baltimore sent in a copy of an article from The Backwoodsman magazine written by Benny Finch that had good basic information on canning and pickling, as well as his recipe for making crisp dill pickled green beans. As the article states, many people are again looking into canning as a method of preserving their garden harvest or farmers' market purchases.

BEAVERTON, Ore. -- I was in my last year of high school, dumping cucumbers into vats of brine at a packing plant, when I discovered where pickles come from. Until then, I had unthinkingly assumed that pickles, just like bread and milk, come from the grocery store.It was the embarrassing but harmless ignorance of a city kid. I remembered it last winter when I read that Linda and Paul McCartney had arrived in Los Angeles, where Linda underwent chemotherapy for a recently discovered breast tumor.

Any fried food that comes from Elvis' home state can't be bad. How else to explain the phenomenon of fried dill pickles? They're simple on the surface: Round pickle slices are battered or dredged in seasoned flour, fried and served with a dipping sauce. But like religions, physics and potato chips, the end is more enticing than the parts. The vinegar and salt under the crispiness of the spicy coating has an addictive quality. Where the pickles actually originated is debated, but most sources point to the Hollywood Cafe in Robinsonville, Miss.

WILMINGTON, Del. - Vlasic Foods International Inc., maker of Vlasic pickles, filed for bankruptcy court protection yesterday to help speed the sale of two of its best-selling brands to ketchup maker H. J. Heinz Co. Cherry Hill, N.J.-based Vlasic is seeking to sell its namesake line of pickles and Open Pit barbecue sauce to Heinz in a bankruptcy auction, Vlasic spokesman Kevin G. Lowery said. Pittsburgh-based Heinz is offering $195 million for the brands as an opening bid. Vlasic shares have fallen 86 percent in the past year as sales slumped and debt mounted.

Let's talk pickles. Sliced dills, to be precise. They shouldn't be squishy. Or too slippery. Or appear aged or infirm. They need to have a wet yet crisp quality - one that demands they be chewed, but not too much. And they need to smell like, well, pickles, with dill and salt flavors clearly coming through. So deem the pickle judges for the Anne Arundel County Fair. By the time the five-day event opens this afternoon in Crownsville, some jars of pickles will sport the volunteer judges' blue ribbons, as will jars of other vegetables, fruits, jams and whatever else entrants have canned and baked.

The Old-Fashioned Fourth of July Celebration at the Carroll County Farm Museum could be considered the calm before the storm - the leisurely picnic and family festival that comes before tens of thousands of people converge on the museum grounds for one of the biggest fireworks show in the region. Thursday, in the hours before that night light show, the "calm" held plenty of attraction as well, from sack races to a performing monkey; mule-drawn wagon rides to a moon bounce; dancing cloggers to pickles on a stick.

The mood Tuesday inside Pickles Pub, across from Camden Yards, matched the gray rainy weather. As noontime regulars ate their lunch and quietly caressed glasses of beer amid the low-key chatter and music playing in the background, something clearly was wrong. Mick Kipp, their favorite bartender, co-worker, cook, spice maker, friend and genuine all-around character, was missing. Michael D. "Mick" Kipp, the stuntman-turned-bartender known for his zest for life and his colorful chili-pepper-decorated kilts, bandannas and earring, died Sunday from cardiac arrest at his Annapolis home.

Pickles Pub, located across the street from Oriole Park at Camden Yards, has long been synonymous with opening day. Thousands of orange-drenched fans make it their first stop (usually of many) on one of Baltimore's most lively days. But at 10 a.m. on April 5, hours before the Orioles host the Minnesota Twins for the first home series of the season, the Deck at Camden Yards - a new, outdoor beer garden at the Hampton Inn -  will open next to Pickles. Deck partner Fritz Brogan says the latest addition to Washington Boulevard will open for Orioles home games, Ravens home games and special events such as the Grand Prix.

This week, we start with the chefs having their own post-mortem on last week's double elimination. Brooke is sad/happy that she has her own room now. Tyler observes that both Kuniko and Carla were both challenge winners who were subsequently eliminated. It's Stefan's 40th birthday and he's filled with trepidation: During his original time on "Top Chef," any chef that had a birthday during filming was promptly eliminated. He dubs it “The Birthday Curse.” The Quickfire brings the gang to the world famous Pike Place Market (I'm surprised it took us five episodes to get here)

Dinner at DelMarVa's Southern Cafe isn't exactly the same as a meal at a charming, out-of-the-way Eastern Shore diner. But it's close. The eatery, which opened this September in the old broom factory building on the Canton-Brewers Hill border, takes its inspiration from the region's comfort food, with a focus on specialties like fried chicken, Virginia ham and crab cakes. For the most part, the kitchen did these local favorites justice. The restaurant's brick walls, sturdy wooden furniture and friendly vibe lend the place a decidedly down-home-on-the-Shore feel.

Cookouts aside, Labor Day is meant to celebrate the American workforce, and its achievements. But these days, even though people are more thankful than ever for their jobs, there's still room to gripe about the absurd, the mundane and the nearly unbelievable things they've done in exchange for a paycheck. Whether it's crazy responsibilities or a terrible boss, everyone seems to have a job-related tale of grief and woe. We invited Sun readers to share stories from their worst jobs.

Paul Quinn manufactures paper clips, which, as a friend reminds him, are intended to hold things together. Pickles Amalfitano creates sculptures that she hopes will connect with people. At the start of Susan Middaugh's A Modern Pas de Deux at the Vagabond Players, however, neither of these middle-aged singles has been able to connect or hold a romantic relationship together. The desire to break that pattern is a valid premise for a play. But in director Barry Feinstein's Baltimore Playwrights Festival production, it's difficult to see what these two lost souls see in each other.

The Orioles break out the cartoon bird logo, and all of a sudden they're unbeatable. Coincidence? Well, yeah, almost certainly so. But it's hard to deny there are some good vibes reverberating through the city right now. Camden Yards has a new rooftop bar in center field, that adorable grinning bird is everywhere you look, and the team actually appears competitive. Think back to 1997, when the Denver Broncos changed their logo and uniforms. The next thing you knew, John Elway was windmilling into the end zone in the first of two Super Bowl victories.
