Freezing Okra preserves the Okra if you are not going to eat it right away.

Freezing Okra that is not going to be eaten right away is fast and easy. First, snip the tips, not too much, do not expose the seeds. Next, place okra in boiling water, for about 3 min.
This helps preserve the okra. Remove and place in ice water, or under tap to cool quickly and stops over-cooking. However you long you blanch the okra, is how long you leave it in the cool water.
Next, air dry on towel and place in freezer bag and place them in the freezer.
