What do u do with oversize okra?

There are times when I can't get tot he garden for a day or so and the okra grow to be too bog and woody. Is there something I can do with it?

  • They do dry nicely for arrangements and last for years. You can also split them open and remove the seeds, which can be fried or added to stir fry, as along as the seeds are still white and not too mature. What you can't do with over-mature pods is eat them. Try cutting into them, if you meet with any resistance, the pod is too mature to cook.

  • You can dry it and use it in flower arrangements. That's about all I know you can do with it. It's not fit to eat after it gets big.

  • Can you puree it and make a soup?
