Our okra crop has been terrific again this summer. I can barely keep it harvested before more pods are ready to be cut.
We eat a lot of fried okra in the summer months and I freeze a lot to cook in the winter months.
How I freeze okra
Wash pods and let dry overnight.
Slice pods to preferred thickness for frying.
Mix sliced pods with preferred breading. I use cornmeal, a small amount of flour, salt and pepper.
Spread breaded okra out on a sheet pan and pop in the freezer until frozen through.
Place frozen okra in freezer bags.
Freezing the pieces individually makes it super easy to pour out just the amount you need for a pan of fried okra. I pour the okra straight out of the bag into the hot frying pan.
