We have two small rows of Clemson spineless okra (approximately 30 plants total). It doesn't make enough to make a meal daily, so I've been cutting pods and then rinsing them, let dry, and freeze whole in a gallon size bag. The idea was to keep adding pods until we had enough to fry.
My problem is when I thawed to cut up they were really soggy, not firm. They still tasted good, but I wondered if I could do something different so they wouldn't be. Any tips?
The plants get minimum direct sun and may be why they're not producing a lot. Plants look healthy and are around 5 ft tall now. I do cut lower limbs off as I pick.
