-  Yield: 6 servings

1 Onion; chopped 1/2 c White Grape Juice;
1/2 Green pepper; diced 1/2 c Water;
2 Ribs Celery; diced 1/4 ts Tabasco sauce;
1 Clove garlic; minced 1/4 ts Paprika;
1 lb Okra; sliced, fresh, frozen 2 tb Fresh parsley; chopped
1 lb Tomatoes; fresh, or canned 1 tb Basil or Rosemary; minced

Method: In a large heavy stew pot, place bouillon and 1/2 C white
grape juice, onion, green pepper, celery garlic, cook until tender,
5-7 minutes. Add other ingredients, cook over low heat, stirring

Note: Cut fresh corn from cob with a sharp knife, then scrape the
remaining corn off the cob. Four ears will make about two cups. If
you use dried herbs, rub them with the palms of your hands before
adding to the pot, this releases their aroma and goodness. Exchanges:

Add all other ingrediets except the catsup and blend well with a
fork. Turn onto foil in pan and, with hands, shape quickly into a 6
by 4 1/2 inch by 2 inch loaf. With the dull edge of a knife make a
crisscross pattern across the top, spread with catup across the top.
Cover loaf with a tent of foil that does not touch the top. Bake 45
minutes. Remove foil; bake, uncovered, another 45 minutes. Remove
from oven and cool in pan for 2-3 minutes before serving. Using this
molded metheod instead of loaf pan allows the fat to drain from the
loaf, whereas a loaf pan retains fat.
