Instructions Checklist
  • To Clean: Use only fresh pods 2 to 4 inches long. Tender okra will snap easily; old pods are dull and woody. Wash okra; remove stems, and slice as directed in recipe.

  • Note: When cooking whole okra, leave a small portion of stem for a firmer texture.

  • Other Cooking Methods: Steam whole; cut crosswise, and batter and fry or deep-fry.

  • Serving Suggestions: Okra may be served with Drawn Butter, Fresh Tomato Sauce, or Lemon-Butter Sauce.
