This spicy stew is a classic in the southern states of the USA. What goes into a gumbo is pretty much up to the individual cook, however, okra is usually an ingredient. Gumbo got its name from an African word quinbombo, which means okra.
The fibrous gums and pectins found in okra help lower cholesterol and provide protection against stomach ulcers.
