  1. pardon me, but what is the attraction for dried over fresh or even frozen?

      I had dehydrated okra as snack food in Japan and LOVED it. This is how I ended up in this blog right now. It is light and crispy and really unique. Nothing like the fresh, frozen, or common cooked okra most of us are used to.

        ok I'll bite.

        it's a much maligned and neglected vegetable.

            1. I've found dried okra at a store in Annapolis, Maryland. The store is called Fresh Market. They were very good. Even my husband, who doesn't even like vegetables, ate most of them.
