While my friend was out of town, I cut the okra in his garden, all the while getting 30 or so pieces a day from my little okra patch. Then my friend got home and someone gave him two bags of okra so he shared one with me. There was enough okra in the one bag from his friend to fill all four trays of the freeze dryer.
I love the really small pods to boil in peas – that’s one of my favorite ways to eat okra but I always let my pods get larger because that’s more okra for later.
There were enough small pods to fill three tray and the ones that were bigger, I sliced for the fourth tray. We will not run out of okra this year!
