Tips for usage
  1. Before cooking, thoroughly wash and rinse whole okra well with water.
  2. After washing, pat it dry completely, using a dry towel.
  3. You can then store it in a zip-lock bag and leave it overnight in the fridge before using it next day. This will make it less slimy while cooking. This will make okra freeze solid.
  4. Add okra immediately to your dish after taking it out from the refrigerator. You can use it as whole or chopped.
  5. Always trim the ends before adding it to your dish.
  6. Don’t allow it to thaw to avoid it from sliming out.
