11 Jul Okra (Storage + Cooking Tips)
Store okra in a loose plastic bag in the refrigerator, and do not wash until just before use. Eat within 3-4 days for best results.
Okra is best preserved by freezing or pickling. To freeze, first blanch in boiling water for three minutes and immediately place in a bowl of ice water. Leave okra whole or slice to desired size. Drain and transfer to a freezer-safe airtight container for freezing.
To pickle, follow the recipe for pickled okra above.
