How to Store and Prepare Fresh Okra

Storage and Preparation:


Fresh Okra is much more perishable than it looks. It is at its very best if prepared the day it is picked or at least the day it is bought. If it must be stored, place the pods, unwashed, in a small paper bag or wrap them in paper towels and seal in a perforated plastic vegetable bag for only a day or two.

Wash the okra just before using. Dry on kitchen towels. If the pods are to be used whole, snip off the stem, leaving about 1/8 inch. Do not cut into the pods. For smaller pieces, cut off the stem and cut the larger pods across into thick slices or chunks.
