When I freeze dried the okra last week, I put in a couple of small pods to see how it would work freeze drying whole pods. It worked fine so that’s what I put in there today.
Lightly salted . . not sure if that’s going to stay on there or if it will flake off. The okra was damp when I put it in so I’m hoping during the freezing process, the salt will stick like glue. Actually, by the time I put it in the freeze dryer, most of the salt had kinda dissolved so I think there should be enough salt on there to give it a good flavor.
Four trays of whole pods of okra. That bottom tray is the same tray shown above so you can see that the salt has pretty much dissolved.
I ended up with this much okra left over. I kept out the large pods and then some of the small pods were leftover after the trays were filled. I’ll probably switch out some of our veggies this week for okra. We do love it!
